Lights in the Night (Hardback)
In this charming picture book for young children, the magic of Shabbat is celebrated through light.
As the sun goes down on a Friday evening and darkness descends, different sources of light welcome in the Sabbath: candles, lanterns, the moon and stars, fireflies, nightlights and then the next morning, the sunrise.
Told in gently rhythmic rhyming couplets and beautifully illustrated throughout, this is an enchanting exploration of light and dark, and a journey through the various rituals and delights of Shabbat.
This is still very charming – a really lovely verse to convey it all, a Jewish family bearing no typical stereotyping, and more all make for a completely charming portrayal of what the Shabbat means. And if the production pulls off the intended effect, this would be a five star volume for the right educational purposes.NetGalley, John Lloyd
This is a simply charming book with illustrations that will enchant readers and listeners. An ideal book to discuss and share the rituals of Shabbat told through beautiful rhyming language that pulls the reader into the pictures. The imagery brings the warmth of the light to the reader and adds to the meaning of the book. An ideal book for Ks 1 and teachers and one that I would recommend.NetGalley, Stephen Richard
