Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is the world, ever changing and new,

Spinning with joy at the wonder of you!

Here Is the World is a joyous celebration of the Jewish holidays throughout the year for young children. Beginning with the weekly observance of Shabbat, readers join a family through the holidays and the corresponding seasons. From sounding the shofar on Rosh Hashanah to lighting the menorah for Chanukah to rattling a grogger for Purim, and on through the Jewish year, the joy and significance of each holiday beautifully come to life.

In addition to the narrative text, there is a description of each holiday in the back matter along with an easy craft or recipe.

Praise for Here is the World

andquot;Both lovely and eminently useful.andquot;

--Kirkus Reviews

andquot;Illustrating the change of seasons, Galandrsquo;s charcoal and digital collage images effervesce with cheery colors, moving from the radiant gold, yellows, and reds of autumn to the greens and blues of springandmdash;with a stop in snowy winter for Chanukah, of course.andquot;
