Praise for The Kids’ Fun Book of Jewish Time (2006, Jewish Lights Publishing)

“A colorful way to help families have a good time learning about Jewish time.” — Sandy Eisenberg Sasso, author of God’s Paintbrush and Butterflies Under Our Hats

School Library Journal
Gr 1–4 — "Lift! Turn! Pull! Learn!" proclaims the cover of this concept book, and by the time readers have finished lifting flaps and pulling tabs, they have received an excellent education about Jewish time. "Thousands of years ago," says the author, "when the Hebrew calendar was invented, time followed nature. The sun, the moon, and the stars were the clocks and calendars." The information about the months and days of the week (along with various observances) is delivered through bold, colorful graphics and narration designed to appeal to kids. Although most likely to be used in Jewish schools, this book could find a place in units on time and calendars. —Lisa Silverman, Sinai Temple Library, Los Angeles.
