By – March 30, 2015

Rosen­feld has writ­ten a count­ing book relat­ing to the mitz­vah of hon­or­ing one’s par­ents. A broth­er and sis­ter count up to ten mitzvoth in which they do not inter­rupt their par­ents, clean up, get dressed, do not sit in their par­ents’ chairs, and oth­ers. The illustra­tions are bold and the num­bers are large and bright. Each page is lam­i­nat­ed to avoid lit­tle fin­gers rip­ping the pages and can be wiped down. 

Ebert has pro­vid­ed engag­ing illus­tra­tions of an Ortho­dox fam­i­ly with two chil­dren in a col­or­ful house setting. 

Rec­om­mend­ed for ages 2 – 5.
