Note: 
A girl and boy walk through the park and learn from the animals and trees. The birds wake up early and sing their thanks to God. A tree shows how to treat a guest – by giving fruit and a spot to rest. All the animals are imbued with unique traits, and as the children explore the park, they note the animals and relate their special qualities to knowing and thanking God. Cute, colorful illustrations accompany the rhyming text. While not subtle, the book demonstrates that by appreciating nature one can appreciate and come closer to God. Although clearly for the Orthodox (the boy is wearing a kippa and God is referred to as “Hashem”), the simple rhyming text carries a message for all readers.
