This pretty little book is a lovely introduction to the different Jewish festivals. My children (all under 6) really enjoy the stories and want to hear them over and over again. It's an American book, but it's easy to just replace the American terms with British ones as you read along. Can highly recommend it for younger children that are looking for a quick and colourful insight into the festivals.

Perfect Intro to Jewish holidays 22 Mar 2011
By Will Riddle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I debated about whether buying this book was really necessary, as a Christian homeschooler, but for $3.99 you really can't go wrong.

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.

Perfect for beginners 27 Oct 2007
By Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was a great introduction to Jewish holidays for my 3-year old. I have been introducing her to the basics of the major holidays as they come along over the past year, but the sweet, simple explanations and pictures in this book help her remember and begin to understand.

Celebrate: A Book of Jewish Holidays 26 May 2009
By MJ Harris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really appreciate this book, as a stepping stone, for my boys to learn about, respect, and appreciate the Jewish culture. The holidays are broken down into fun and easy to understand sections, with vivid childrens illustrations. I was not afforded the opportunity as a child to learn about the Jewish religion/culture, and am very thankful that I have the opportunity to learn right along with my boys, as we journey through a homeschooling curriculum together. The author/illustrator did a phenominal job making this topic easy to understand and fun to learn.

Great for Kids and Adults! 20 Sep 2011
By MeadowSprite - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Easy to read; lots of bright pictures!

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.

Good Basic 12 Sep 2009
By 3xmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Little long--my 5 y.o. was losing interest. But a good basic book to have, espec as a resource book. Informative and well-done. I like that it follows the Jewish calendar too in terms of doing the holidays in order.
