Everyone’s favorite little spider is back, still spinning webs and still teaching children Jewish values in his delightful way. His latest adventure educates about the mitzvah of bikur cholim, visiting the sick to promote healing and to bring comfort and a sense of caring. Josh Shapiro isn’t feeling well and Sammy watches family and friends try to help. When he sees an opportunity, he pitches in, as well, and manages, in his own way, to help Josh feel better. Once again, young children are entertained while absorbing wholesome lessons, Jewish concepts and Hebrew vocabulary. The colorful art appeals, entices and brightens, adding to the feel-good theme.
Highly recommended for ages 3 – 8.
