“Summer holidays are drawing near,
so write your requests and put them in here.”
Aba wrote ‘Africa’, Shani chose ‘Mars,’
Gal drew pink ponies and pink candy bars!
Ima counted the votes and they went to the beach,
While the box was left on a shelf out of reach.
A clever and original story of a young girl, Shani, who uses an old shoebox for different Jewish festivals throughout the year.
Starting with new shoes for Rosh Hashana, Shani uses the box for Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Chanukah, Tu B’shvat, Purim, Pesach, Yom Ha’atzmaut, Lag Ba’Omer, Shavuot - until she gets new shoes on Rosh Hashana again.
A beautiful, gentle story for 4-8 year olds.
