For a child the food we see on our tables comes in boxes, plastic bags and cans, and is bought in a store. The child is taught the different bracha’s, blessings, to be said before eating each type of food, to thank Hashem for all the different foods. The specific bracha said on each food is based on the origin of that particular food.
Where Does Food Come From? Attempts to bridge that gap between the child and the bracha to be said, by illustrating where each food comes from. The amazing detailed illustrations will help the child understand the growing and processing of bread, grape juice, baked goods, fruits and vegetables and the meaning of the bracha. Which in turn will give the child the basic knowledge to know and understand what brachas to say.

About the Author:
Dina (Devorah Leah) Rosenfeld was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She is the daughter of Emil and Rita Herman who imbued her with a love of good books and encouraged her writing from a very early age. Dina attended the Yeshiva Achei Tmimim through high school and continued her Jewish studies in New York at Beth Rivka Teachers’ Seminary.
The author’s first books were born of necessity. As a preschool Hebrew teacher, she simply could not find age-appropriate, full color picture books for her 4-year-old students and decided to create children’s stories of her own.
The Very Best Place for a Penny and A Tree Full of Mitzvos were her first manuscripts to be accepted for publication thanks to the involvement of her husband, Shimon Aron Rosenfeld.
Dina went on to write numerous children’s books. Modern-day stories such as Labels for Laibel, On the Ball, All About Us, A Chanukah Story for Night Number Three, and The Very Best Book published by Hachai Publishing are some beloved favorites.
Her tales from Biblical sources, such as A Little Boy Named Avram, Kind Little Rivka and Dovid the Little Shepherd are used by teachers and parents to bring Torah heroes and heroines alive for the very youngest children.
Mrs. Rosenfeld’s books offer a variety of styles and sizes. She has collaborated with nine different artists and writes both in rhyme and in prose.
In addition to her own writing, Dina edits children’s books and oversees their production from first draft through the final layout stage.
Due to the popularity of her work, certain titles have been translated into Portuguese, Russian, German and Italian. The author is gratified that her books are read and enjoyed in homes and classrooms around the world.
Dina Rosenfeld, a member of the Lubavitcher community lives in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, NY with her family.
