ARON AND HIS GRANDPA tells the story of the close bond that develops between a Jewish boy growing up in America and the boy’s grandfather, who lives in Israel. The grandfather visits his family in America every Passover, and the relationship between the boy and his grandfather becomes increasingly close as they celebrate the Passover Seder and discuss its meaning.
Born in Israel (then called “Palestine”), Judith Weinshall Liberman came to the United States in 1947 to pursue higher education. She earned four American university degrees including two in law, a J.D. from the University of Chicago Law School and an LL.M. from the University of Michigan Law School. After settling in the Boston area in 1956, she studied art and creative writing. Beginning in the early 1960s, and for four decades thereafter, Ms. Liberman created numerous series of artworks. Her art has been widely exhibited, and is represented in the collection of museums and other public institutions. During her long career in visual art, Ms. Liberman wrote several books, among them some picture books. Her book THE BIRD’S LAST SONG (Addison-Wesley, 1976), which she also illustrated, won a citation as one of the “fabulous books of the year.” Since 2012, she has published additional picture books, including ICE CREAM SNOW, COLOR IN OUR WORLD, HAIFA, THE BEE AND THE BUTTERFLY, THE LITTLE SONGBIRD, THE BIRD WHO WENT TO HEAVEN, THE GIRL AND THE PIGEONS, WHAT WILL I BE?, LUCY AND THE SNOWMAN, IF I HAD A LITTLE SISTER, IF I WERE A MOM, THE SECRET, ANNE FRANK IN MY ART, RUTHIE AND HER ANCESTORS, AN INTRODUCTION TO MY JUDAICA ART, SHOP AND SHOP, RONNIE’S ALARM CLOCK, HEAVENLY GARDENS, HOLOCAUST PAINTINGS, HOMO SAPIENS, SELF PORTRAITS OF A HOLOCAUST ARTIST, YOUR GRANDPA, MY BIRTHDAY, THE FUTURE, QUEEN ESTHER, THE KING, and GRANDMA’S LESSONS. Judith Weinshall Liberman’s archives can be found in the Arts Department of the Boston Public Library and at the Smithsonian Archives of American Art.
ARON AND HIS GRADPA is the thirty-second book on which Judith Weinshall Liberman, the author, has collaborated with Gail Davis, the illustrator. Since Ms. Liberman did not feel that, in light of her deteriorated eyesight, she could do justice to illustrating ARON AND HIS GRANDPA herself, she selected a fine artist, Ms. Gail Davis, to create the illustrations under the author’s guidance. The two had previously collaborated on THE LITTLE FAIRY, THE VERY OLD PAINTER AND HER HUSBAND, ANGEL’S PUPPIES, THE GIANT HOUSE, THE MOUNTAIN, THE TUNNEL, THE OLD DOLL, FIFTEEN FABLES, TWELVE MORE FABLES, A PARAKEET FOR ERIC, TALES OF HUMAN FOIBLES, IN THE MILITRY CEMETERY, MORE TALES OF HUMAN FOIBLES, MICHAEL AND THE FLAG, IF I HAD THE POWER, IF I WERE RICH, THE WHIRLPOOL, THE LETTERS OF THE ALPHABET, TALE OF THE ROMAN NUMERALS, THE BRIDGE, GRANDMA’S GLASSES, THE RAINBOW, THE TRAIN, THE WAIING WALL, THE BLANKET, EXPULSION, THE SINKING OF THE PATRIA, BEN AND THE BISHOP, THE VISIT TO LATRUN, ROKITNO SQUARE and MY FRIEND GERARD. In the present book, Ms. Davis beautifully captures the spirit of the story and of its characters.
