Linda started to write and publish interactive Jewish children’s books in 2007 because she felt the lack of modern Jewish children’s books in Hungarian.
With Bee Jewish Books (Zsidongó books) Linda created a an outstanding Jewish children’s book series and helped thousands of Jewish family to learn and talk about Judaism in a pluralistic and fun way. The books are translated to seven languages. She is making workshops and book signing events and activities based on her books.
