A Touch of the High Holidays is a novelty board book. It includes all the Jewish holidays that occur in the month of Tishri, from Rosh Hashanah to Simchat Torah. Two page spreads describe several aspects of each holiday before settling on one that is reinforced by something to touch. Feel the many textures of our holidays - the stickiness of honey, the smoothness of a machzor cover, the bumpiness of an esrog, and the velvety softness of a Torah cover. Best of all, children will see themselves in a sukkah. Definitely a hands-on winner!
