This is a perfect introduction into Jewish Religion and Culture for Children of all backgrounds when teaching them to appreciate the customs of others, but especially central for me in helping my child understand what the home of Jesus Christ was like. Thanks!
It's basically a family album with captions. I suppose it is informative on one level but I don't know what I could use it for. I was expecting an illustrated book that my young children would find interesting.
