This is a very cute book that introduces some of the basic items of Shabbat. It is a durable board book with full color pictures on each page. Overall, it is a good item. However, there could have been more detail and explanation. The children shown in the book seem older than the appropriate age (preschool) of children who would get the most use out of the book.

This is one of my daughter's favorite books. She absolutely loves it, asks for it by name, and has much of it memorized. On Friday nights she calls out "kiddush!" at the right time, and immediately recognizes the havdalah candle on Motsei Shabbat--all because of this fun, entertaining work that we enjoy reading to her. She began reading it when she was one and a half and now, at age two, she loves it more than ever. I recommend it highly. As a Masorti/Conservative rabbi, I must also add that this book strikes the perfect balance between being traditional, yet appealing to families who have a less traditional orientation. It is fit for the Shabbat observant while being informative and educational for the less affiliated family. Kol Ha Kavod to Clare Lister et. al. who put this book together. If I had been asked to proofread it, there are some pointers I would have made, but overall, I still give it 5 stars.

This is a really lovely book that introduces young children to the key concepts of Shabbat. It has great photos and is designed very artfully. Lest one take such quality for granted, the two other Jewish board books in this series, one about Passover and one about Hannukah, are not as nice--they seem to have been put together with less care, and the photos are not as fetching.

This is a great book, great pictures. I would reccomend this book for children 3yrs and up. There is quite a bit of text in it. I thought there would be just pictures. Oh well, I will save it for my daughter when she is a bit older.
