Sam and Charlie (and Sam Too) Return!

(3) 1-3 Illustrated by William Owl. In their second early chapter book, neighbor best friends Sam (boy) and Charlie (girl), along with Charlie's little sister (also named Sam), go through a year together, celebrating changing seasons, new friendships, and several Jewish holidays. The characters' quirky and offbeat personalities shine in their interactions and also through Owl's sunny, colorful illustrations. Subtle lessons about the holidays are apparent but not overpowering.
