No explanation of key hebrew words - eg. Challa - I should think this would be unhelpful if you don't happen to have been brought up in the Jewish tradition. Some American terminology which doesn't come across either. Irritating details, eg. Mummy spider persists in calling her son 'Silly Little Sammy' whenever he asks a (perfectly reasonable) question. Ends with a really cheesy pun - not in a good way. Not sure why it's so difficult to find a contemporary book about religion for kids. The illustrations are interesting though.
