Originally published in 1990 with illustrations by Toby Vegh, this new edition retains the same text and pagination as the original. Malkie is a little girl who wakes up on Friday eagerly waiting for Shabbos to begin. Throughout the day, as she helps her mother clean, shop, cook, bake challah, set the table, give tzedakah, light the candles, and say the blessing, Malkie keeps asking, "Is it Shabbos yet?" At last the long awaiting time arrives and the story ends with a "Good Shabbos" from Malkie. The new illustrations are finer in line and more gently colored than the originals but they make no real difference in overall impact of the story, which is pleasant and geared to preschoolers.
