Customer Reviews

Very sweet illustrations and story.
Wilhelmina Zeitgeist
This book is well suited for children 2-4 and a great way to incorporate your own story, share our heritage and engage a child's imagination through illustration.
Wulfstan
Though there are plenty of individual things, which each pertain to many other things, the text lacks having a variety of rhythmic words to traverse.

Format: Hardcover
This book tells a story through the equal use of pictures and words. It begins with a picture of a boy waking up and the words "One morning. Many Kisses." It then proceeds to show the two parents and a child cleaning the house, collecting flowers, making challah, coloring, getting dressed, welcoming friends (who appear to drive a BMW), lighting candels, eating dinner, and saying goodnight. Each page includes only a few short phrases describing the scene, making the book most appropriate for the baby/young-toddler age group. I did not find the book terribly insightful or interesting and prefer other Shabbat books. (Please see my other Amazon book reviews for the names of books that I recommend.)

This is a well done picture book, that although not a traditional book with a long story; the illustrations allow the reader and the child to explore what they see in the book and at home. I found that while the child would listen to the words she had many more questions about the people and objects. This allowed us to have a fuller conversation and develop our own family story completed with names of those depicted. This book is well suited for children 2-4 and a great way to incorporate your own story, share our heritage and engage a child's imagination through illustration.

This is a lovely story of one Shabbat, seen through the eyes of a little boy, told in forty-seven words. The story celebrates family, faith, tradition, nature and, last but not least, kisses.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I got this book because we observe Shabbat and I like to find as many books as I can about it so the kids can realize they aren't "alone" in their celebration. This is a nice, simple book for the Preschool to First Grade crowd. The illustrations are quite nice and there are many Jewish symbols within the book that the children can see and learn about. It is a quick read which covers the concept of from one thing, there can be many (i.e. One challah. Many slices. One sky. Many stars.). However, from the title (Many Days, One Shabbat) I was expecting to read a book about various children do on Shabbat. The book read as if this child was going through one day, not many. Also, while it covered many things done traditionally by Jewish families on Shabbat (we are not Jewish), it wasn't overwhelming about Shabbat itself. Still, if you know what you are getting - this is a wonderful little book.

I would recommend this book to:
1. Jewish families wishing to increase their library with books their children can relate to and see themselves in.
2. Non-Jewish families that observe/celebrate Shabbat for religious or other reasons and want their children to see themselves in the pages.
3. Families wishing to introduce their young children to other religions or cultures.
4. Families wishing to build a multicultural library for their young children.

I would consider this a book about a family with a young child that happens to be Jewish and happens to be celebrating Shabbat as opposed to a book in which one can learn about Shabbat.

I love the colorful illustrations, and the way they take up two pages...I love the short phrases that sum up each picture - it's almost like a sweet poem spread throughout the book!

I married into a Jewish family, so I had to ask my husband how to pronounce "challah," but I enjoyed reading this to my son.

Perfect to read to a one year old and read along with through age 5 or 6.

Simple words - lovely pictures - plenty for the child to point to.

I got this to read to a nephew who just turned five and his family is incorporating Jewish traditions in their Christian family.

This lovely book was enjoyed by us all.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book follows a very specific pattern. Each page has the words "many X one Y" (for example, "many days one shabbat"). The real story is told in the pictures, which show a family going about their day and preparing for shabbat. The simplicity of the book appeals more to the very young child (0-3), and by the time they're learning to read the lack of plot will probably bore them. It's a great book for improvising and stimulating further discussion - getting your child to identify and discuss the images, identify objects, and identify character's motives.

A nice basic book which explores the importance of Shabbat from a Jewish perspective in a way that even the youngest can be made to feel special learning how and why we participate in the Mitzvah of Shabbat.
