On Rosh Hashanah And Yom Kippur (Aladdin Picture Books)

"Every year, people we know send cards to wish me and my family a happy and healthy New Year. La Shana Tova, they say in Hebrew." How can you tell when it is time for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur? The young girl in this story can tell when her family receives cards wishing them a happy New Year. They gather together to light candles for the holiday meal and say blessings over apples and honey. They go to synagogue to pray and hear the shofar. From New Year cards and having a special holiday meal, to worshiping at temple and sending the year's sins away on the river, the young narrator of this story describes each activity of the High Holy Days as she experiences this special time with her family.

This sweet book is best for very young children, who will enjoy the mild and simple text and its young siblings' observations of the "birthday of the world," and more. The beautiful and inventive mixed-media illustrations will speak to parents and kids alike. Definitely worth reading and admiring.

Great book, slow pace, quiet colors, good sequence and explanations. Several Hebrew terms are introduced, e.g., during the blowing of the shofar. This is a true gem and it also provides theological depth for a children book that is very welcome and well done. I realy love it and it is done with great care and warmth.

This little book arrived in perfect condition and in a very timely manner. I will be happy and confident to purchase books from this vendor and highly recommend them.
