The Jewish Chronicle

Cover: The Cricket and the Ant: A Shabbat Story

“The Cricket and the Ant is a Shabbat fable by Naomi Ben-Gur (Kar-Ben, £6).
Cricket spends his week busking, while Ant gets on with her Shabbat baking. Yet she is kind enough to lend her neighbour some ingredients when he runs out of shopping time. Sadly, she takes her eye off
her own baking and it is ruined. Will she have to face a cakeless Shabbat? Cricket is far from ready to
be talent-spotted by Lark’s mother but under-fives will still like to chant along. The moral of the story is clear and the insects’ expressions, as illustrated by Shahar Kober, are a joy.”—The Jewish Chronicle
