We bought this little book for a unit on Jewish holidays but there are a million books out there on this subject. After going through whole stacks from the library, my little kids kept coming back to this one. The illustrations are really cute and friendly, especially for the kindergarten age. The stories are just long enough to hold their interest, and just easy enough for them to understand. My preschooler especially liked the Passover explanation with the little kids hunting for the afikomen.
The bible stories aren't the most elaborate, so it will help for your kids to have external resources for most of them. But the basics are covered and again, the length and ease of the book keeps the kids coming back to review. Considering how difficult Hebrew can be, and learning ten new holidays can be slightly intimidating, this is a great accomplishment.
All four of my kids mastered the basics after our unit, largely due to this book. There are many more elaborate books out there, and more beautiful ones, which are worth digging into, but this is functional and gets the job done.
My daughter and I have been celebrating the Jewish holidays with our Jewish friends for the past couple years. I have decided to convert to Judaism, and this book is a great resource to explain each of the holidays during the year that she has been experiencing. Its a nice way to look back to holidays shared with friends and an exciting way for myself to think about how I will be someday be celebrating these holidays in my own home.
