“Won’t you come with me as I go along my way? Try to guess the special words that I know how to say.” Spending a day with his family at a friend’s home, a little boy encounters occasions where “Hello,” “Nice meeting you,” “Mazel tov,” “Please,” Amein,” “Thank you,” “I’m sorry,” and “Goodbye” are the right things to say. If they can’t supply the words themselves, with rhyming hints, little ones can find them by lifting a flap on each double-page spread of illustrated text. Cheerful realistic pictures of Orthodox Jews at a bris—the occasion that brings them all together—are reflective of the experiences of many young Jewish children and the earnest little story is cute, if nothing more. A sequel to What Do I Say? by the same author and illustrator (Hachai 2005), it has a glossary on the last page that defines all of the non-English words except “bris.”
