My Torah Numbers

  • Review
By – September 18, 2013

These three bright­ly col­ored, stur­dy board books intro­duce chil­dren to basic Jew­ish con­cepts and vocab­u­lary. In My Torah Col­ors, Jew­ish and some gen­er­al objects are dis­played, with each page fea­tur­ing one col­or. The pages of My Torah Num­bers fea­ture the count­ing of Jew­ish items such as kid­dush cups and meno­rahs accom­pa­nied by pic­tures. My Alef-Beis is read from right to left and has a pic­ture for each let­ter of the Hebrew alpha­bet with words labeled in both Eng­lish and Hebrew. The fonts are easy to read and the pic­tures are cheer­ful and appeal­ing. These books are rec­om­mend­ed for tod­dlers who are learn­ing all about their Jew­ish world and are per­fect for lap­time fun.
