“This thoughtfully prepared book not only teaches the blessings that herald the holidays and that welcome and close each day and each meal, but also includes parts of the Mi Sheberach and the Kaddish, prayers to turn to as needed when a loved one is ill or has died or when praying for peace.”

Forward: The Jewish Daily

“This is a delightful book, a wonderful way to introduce a child to Jewish prayer. . . a must for any Jewish school as well as home[s] where there are young children.”

Washington Jewish Week

“Designed as a first prayer book for young children, this beautifully illustrated work in delicate watercolors is presented in simple Hebrew, phonetic transliteration, and English. . . Sitting with a child and saying these prayers can be a very special experience.”
