Well, he is back! That loveable and wise meerkat is now delivering a very special message of rhyme to our youngest pre-readers. Suneby and Heiman have smartly re-envisioned their It’s a…It’s a …It’s a Mitzvah for the preschool set with a new twist. Using classic nursery rhymes, they have captured and extended the essence of mitzvah in memorable phrases that will bring Judaic principles into the daily lives of toddlers. The bouncy rhythm moves you from, “Monkey see, monkey do. Let’s be nice to someone new” to “Jack be nimble, Jack be quick. Take time to visit someone sick.” Molk’s illustrations of these endearing characters speak to all ages and every child will find their favorite.
Spend time reading That’s A Mitzvah with your children, grandchildren or class and one may find that even we adults may alter our rhyming memories for these deeply meaningful jewels of Judaism.
Highly recommended for infants, preschoolers and early childhood programs, this book bears the seal of Early Childhood Spirituality (ECS) Every Child’s Soul.
