Young Ben­ny has a pro­found appre­ci­a­tion for Shab­bos. He counts down the days to this most excit­ing day of the week by count­ing the spe­cial arti­cles of cloth­ing his moth­er is prepar­ing for him to wear. Writ­ten in rhyme, and with col­or illus­tra­tions, the sto­ry vivid­ly com­mu­ni­cates Benny’s excite­ment about observ­ing Shab­bos and beau­ti­ful­ly con­veys his atti­tude of respect. 

A book that can help inspire enthu­si­asm in young chil­dren, this engag­ing sto­ry is rec­om­mend­ed for ages 2 – 5.

Nathan Weissler is a senior in high school and lives in Chevy Chase, MD with his fam­i­ly. He has been writ­ing reviews for Jew­ish Book World for two years. Nathan loves to read, espe­cial­ly books relat­ed to Judaism and history.
