Note: 
This charmingly illustrated story version of the song by Sheldon Harnick and Jerry Bock, written for Fiddler On the Roof, is perfect for storytelling and a subtle, non-didactic way to introduce young children to the concept of the Jewish life cycle. Full page pictures of shtetl life and shtetl dwellers predominate, with a few lines of the song on each double page spread. The tone is wistful and life-affirming, as parents watch their children grow up, marry, and have children of their own. Words and music of the song are printed on the last two pages. Not to be missed!
