Title: Here Comes Shabbos!

Title: Here Comes Shabbos!
Author: Ilana H. Keilson

Illustrator: Nechama Leibler

Publisher: Artscroll Youth Series

The book Here Comes Shabbos! is about a family baking, cooking, polishing silver, shining shoes, shopping and cleaning for Shabbos. The activities begin on Friday morning and only conclude shortly before lighting the Shabbos candles. During that time span, it covers everything you need to do in order to get ready for Shabbos. It is especially nice how the children call their grandparents on Friday to wish them a good Shabbos. The book shows the mother making a delectable feast, and from the vivid illustrations, it looks good enough to eat straight off of the pages. It is also nice to look at three or four-year-old children helping their mother get ready for Shabbos. The book can also serve as a preparation checklist.

As it has been a while since I enjoyed an illustrated children’s book, I enlisted the help of my two brothers, ages 5 and 8. They both sat enthralled (especially the 5-year-old) as I read it to them slowly, asking them what they observed on the pages before I read it to them. They always knew exactly what was described due to the life-like illustrations. In addition to the illustrations, they also liked the clever rhyming phrases. Their favorite illustration was the one in the grocery store, and it made us all hungry. After listening to both of my brothers’ opinions, I think Here Comes Shabbos! is ideal for 3 – 6-year-olds.

Here Comes Shabbos! is a book all young children will love and beg to be read to them over and over again – on any day of the week. Also, children will be inspired by the children in the story to help out for Shabbos as well. This book would be perfect in any playgroup, kindergarten or Pre-1A classroom. Parents and teachers may also be able to teach children to perform some of the simpler tasks in the story.

It might still be two weeks to Pesach, but is never too early to start thinking about Afikomen presents.

When the Fine family (not related to the Feiners from Alone in Africa!) move into a new neighborhood, the twin siblings named Nesanel (again, not related to Nesanel Feiner) and Nechama set out on a very important mission – finding friends to rescue them from their boredom.

Alone in Africa, by Avigail Sharer, is an original adventure story about three siblings named Nesanel, Penina and Chezky Feiner, who are, well, alone in Africa. Except they aren’t entirely alone – they have animals and two battling African tribes to keep them company.

This book is very riveting. It is a comprehensive biography of the Mirrer Rosh Yeshivah, Rabbi Nosson Tzvi Finkel, zt’l. It starts out telling us about the Mirrer Yeshiva escaping to Shanghai from Lithuania during World War II because of the invading Germans. It then describes Rabbi Finkel’s family, and then Rabbi Finkel himself. It is important for young adults to see our gedolim as role models, and Rabbi Teller’s biography provides just that. Also, Rabbi Finkel is a relatable role model, because he grew up as a typical American Jewish kid.
