Jewish Book Council

“The twins, Sophie and Seth, along with their parents, enjoy a picnic lunch on Shabbat, their favorite day of the week. After saying the motzi over challah, drinking cider, and eating fruit and cheese, they run off to the barn where they discover twin newborn calves. Rhyming couplets introduce the simple pleasures found on this quiet day. The softly-colored illustrations in this board book show an idyllic setting, uninterrupted by the outside world.

Recommended for ages 2-5.”—Jewish Book Council
