Dr. Wolfson has created an enticing guide for kids to help them understand and practice the values of Judaism in their daily lives. How do our children learn? From the moment of their birth they are learning by watching and emulating the actions that they see in their environment. Dr. Wolfson’s To-Do List for Kids playfully guides and stimulates our pre-teens toward a deeper understanding of the Commandments by bringing relevance to their personal actions and helping them develop a partnership with G‑d who needs them be His active partners on earth. Who wouldn’t want to participate in the top superhero’s league? Wolfson’s approach is open and direct. He greets children with great respect for the powers that they possess, as beings made in the image of G‑d. He addresses the concepts of caring, blessing, comforting, repairing, wrestling and forgiving with a wit and a warmth that engage the child while encouraging all children to question and to seek answers for themselves.
The book is also a perfect aid for parents and teachers, either as a class workbook or as an individual project. It is recommended for ages 8 and up and is a terrific preparation for the pre-Bar or Bat Mitzvah.
