The latest entry in the Very First Board Books series introduces young children to Shabbat. Simple rhymes immediately engage the reader. This lovely book for the youngest listeners begins, “Friday’s here. Jump and cheer. Shabbat is coming.” The reader/listener follows a loving family and its pet puppy as they prepare for Shabbat and look forward to its arrival.
Full color illustrations work together perfectly to support the simple text, sharing the feelings that accompany the preparations for and the welcoming in of this special day.
Some of the other titles in this age appropriate series, which introduces the youngest children to aspects of Jewish life, are: Goodnight Sh’ma, The Colors of My Jewish Year, and Thank You, Trees. All are recommended for home and preschool reading.
Recommended for ages 1 – 5.
