What does your Shabbat look like? Join this little boy and his adorable beagle puppy Ellie for a Shabbat spent in the sun, and learn about traditions and the importance of quality time with family, friends and neighbours.

After a very busy day – walking to the synagogue and back, a delicious picnic with Gran and Uncle Dave, playing on the beach with Sarina – one by one, everyone drifts off to sleep…

With bright and colourful illustrations by an award-winning illustrator, This is My Shabbat is a heart-warming story, perfect for reading together at bedtime.

'I find this book very relaxing. Printed in text and Braille, it features a blind boy and his family enjoying a peaceful Shabbat, attending services, picnicking on the beach, taking naps. The sensory language, soothing repetition, and sunny illustrations are a winning combination.’
