Cover: It's a Mitzvah, Grover!

“With broom in hand, Grover joins his Rechov Sumsum friends Brosh, Avigail, and Mahboub in doing a mitzvah by cleaning up storm debris cluttering their playground. Working together, the amiable group picks up all the trash. Before applying a fresh coat of paint to the swings, slide, and teeter-totter, each Muppet takes turns reciting items they like which are red, yellow, blue, purple, green, or orange. In no time, the clean-up crew makes the playground a better place. When they take the trash to Moishe for disposal, even the grouchy oofnik performs a mitzvah by saving the rotten food and by putting the aluminum cans and glass bottles in the recycling bin. This book is the perfect teaching tool for introducing a young audience to the concepts of tikkun olam, doing a mitzvah, learning colors, and recycling. Leigh, a long-time illustrator of Sesame Street and Muppet books, brings these familiar characters to life. Tilda Balsley is the author of Maccabee!: The Story of Hanukkah (2010), The Queen Who Saved Her People (2011), and Oh No, Jonah! (2012). This is part of a new series of Shalom Sesame books published by Kar-Ben that includes Count’s Hanukkah Countdown and Grover and Big Bird’s Passover Celebration.”—AJL Newsletter
