This energetic, silly Hanukkah parody of Goodnight Moon turns the quiet green room into a family dance party.Includes an exclusive latke recipe by Ina Garten!

In the small blue room there was a bubbala, and a little shmatta, and then, oy vey!, came–the whole mishpakcha!

This lively parody of one of America’s favorite bedtime books imagines how Margaret Wise Brown’s story might unfold if the little one were a Jewish bunny with his bubbies and zeydes saying goodnight. In Goodnight Bubbala, that bedtime routine includes slurping matzoh ball soup, and dancing the hora with all the family members, and–because it’s Hanukkah–playing a few rounds of dreidel as well. It’s a joyous, endearing celebration of the Yiddish language and the Jewish American experience, particularly during the festival of lights.
