Clever paper engineering turns Jewish time into interactive educational fun!
This vibrant and colorful novelty book offers a unique tool for familiarizing children with the Jewish calendar. Covering all aspects of Jewish time, it introduces young readers ages 3 to 6 to night and day, the seven-day week, Shabbat, the Hebrew months, and seasons and special dates.
Young readers will have fun as they learn about Jewish time through interacting with the text. They can slide the sun down, pull the tab to “light” Shabbat candles, turn a wheel to watch three stars come out, play with reflections in the flame of the Havdalah candle, rotate the phases of the moon to find the new month, match each season with its Hebrew and English name, lift the flaps to learn Hebrew dates, and much, much more.
