Amazon.com Review

The Book of Miracles: A Young Person's Guide to Jewish Spiritual Awareness brings Lawrence Kushner's funny, warm, smart perspective on Judaism to young readers. (This book will be most popular among kids ages 9 to 13.) Kushner's chapters on "Seeing," "Hearing," and "Doing" tell stories based on the Hebrew Scriptures in a style that is perfect for bedtime reading. "To be a Jew means to wake up and to keep your eyes open to the many beautiful, mysterious, and holy things that happen all around us every day," Kushner writes. "Many of them are like little miracles: when we wake up and see the morning light, when we taste food and grow strong, when we learn from others and grow wise, when we hug the people we love and feel warm." Kushner's goal in The Book of Miracles is to help children learn to ask good questions about spirituality by speaking directly to their concrete way of thinking and their voracious curiosity. The spiritual goal that Kushner guides children to assume is one that many adults will take for themselves as well. "The goal of spirituality is the bringing together of seeing, hearing, and doing into one whole person," he writes. "It is to see yourself mirrored in the heavens above and to realize that the Holy One created you personally to help complete the work of repairing the world." --Michael Joseph Gross --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

When my daughter was young I purchased this book for her. It was paperback at that time. My daughter now grown. She read it so many times it became twice its size. I recently purchased it for a gift for a dear friend who has a small child. It the child can read it is wonderful, and if not what a great book to read to them. There is no book that my daughter became so attached to. Highly recommend.

We read these as read aloud bedtime stories - when picture books are "too little" and novels are too stimulating this made for a good night time reading and talking time about the great stories and topics brought up. Works for age 10 and up.

Kushner writes elegantly of the Jewish faith and introduces children in such a gentle way to their heritage. Lovely book from beginning to end. G-d speaks in this writing.
