Jewish Values: Round and Round the Jewish Year: Elul-Tishrei

Publication Year: 
Number of Pages: 
67 p.
Elul-Tishrei is the first volume in a four volume series entitled Round and Round the Jewish Year. It combines stories, poetry, and information to describe to young readers what happens at each point in the year. The mix of different types of writing makes for interesting reading. The clear text includes a lot of detail but can be easily understood although it may need to be read to children rather than ready by children, whose reading skills are not very developed. The language in the book will be most familiar to Orthodox families but there is a glossary in the back for reference, which might help. The illustrations are great, with bold, saturated colors that are enticing to children. The images evoke emotions appropriate for the text and add to readers’ understanding.
