5.0 out of 5 stars This is a fun story about how Grover's friends taught him all about doing a mitzvah ... 7 Feb 2013
By D. Fowler - Published on
Grover sat in his little purple chair getting ready to write to all his friends about all his friends on Israel's television show, Rechov Sumsum. It was really a lot like Sesame Street and while he was there he learned all about "tikkun alam." When Grover first heard those Hebrew words from Brosh he scratched his head when he explained, "It means `repairing the world.'" The playground they were on was a BIG mess with broken swings and all kinds of litter scattered about. There was even a sneaker on the grass. Avigail and Mahboub were all excited and wanted to help clean up everything and "paint the swings, slide, and seesaw."

Brosh explained that they were "doing a `mitzvah'" when they repaired their playground. That blue finger went right back up to Grover's head to give it a little scratch because he didn't know what that Hebrew word meant either. While everyone got out the trash bags and put some paint in the wagon, Brosh explained that "It means to do something nice for others." On the way they ran into Moishe in his trash can and asked if he wanted to help with their mitzvah. "Forget it! I don't like helping, and I don't want to do a mitzvah," he claimed. Was there any way they could get that grouch to help?

This is a fun story about how Grover's friends taught him all about doing a mitzvah. Grover, Brosh, Avril, and Mahboub want to make the world a better place by cleaning up the playground, but of course grumpy old Moishe had no intention of helping. In this book young children will learn the importance of a mitzvah as they see several examples of the characters helping out one another. The fun little twist at the end shows how even Moishe learns to help others. If you want to help little ones learn how Grover and his friends learned about a commandment while being nice to each other, this would be the perfect book to add to your list!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tikkun Olam Project By Grover and His Friends From Rechov Sumsum (Israeli co-production of Sesame Street) 20 Mar 2013
By Jill H. - Published on
Grover and his friends from Rechov Sumsum (an Israeli co-production of Sesame Street) come together to help out with tikkun olam (doing good deeds to help make the world a better place). A storm has gone through the playground and they come together to clean it up, which includes picking up debris and trash. They also have fun picking out what colors they want to paint the playground with and making new colors they can use by mixing some of those same colors together. There are examples described and illustrated throughout the story about how Grover and his friends each have done something to make the world a better place.

This children's book promoted for children ages 2-6 showed that anybody can help make the better place, and that even if the project is big it can be taken on by a group of people and finished much quicker. A group project can also be looked at as working individually within a group if people are given different parts of the project to complete. Doing good deeds such as described in this book can rub off onto people who wouldn't normally want to participate in tikkun olam also. We may get dirty on the outside in the process of completing the acts of mitzvah but our hearts might often might feel cleaner when we are finished.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a free copy of this book from Kar-Ben Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

This is a great introduction to the concepts of Tikkun Olam and mitvahs. It also teaches colors and what happens when you mix the primary colors together.
2.0 out of 5 stars Book is great but pages are out of order 16 April 2014

I bought this for my 2 year old nephew. He loves Jewish books and loves Sesame Street. When my sister received the book, she said that some of the pages are out of order and the first page of the book is repeated in the middle of the book. We emailed the publisher, but never heard back.

It's a Mitzvah, Grover!: Read-Aloud Edition by Ellen Fischer

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

It's a Mitzvah, Grover! by Ellen Fischer is from Kar-ben Publishing, "a growing Jewish library for children". It is about Grover and him learning about good deeds (Mitzvah). A cute and colorful story about friendship and doing what is right to make the world a better place. Not being Jewish myself I found I stumbled a little over pronunciation as I am not as familar with some names and phrases. My daughter and I enjoyed reading this story together.
