Title: My Tzitzis Book
Author: Elisheva Schreiber
Illustrator: Batsheva Ravad
Another member of Feldheim’s Show ‘n Tell Window Books, My Tzitzis Book is a tale told from a little boy’s point of view. Presented in a lap-sized hardcover, the story is a window into an exciting world and designed to be shared with adults. They’re important for making the text totally understandable to children who need user-friendly commentary.
Easy-to-read rhymes describe the influence that tzitzis are supposed to have on a young reader’s behavior. Adult-oriented prose explains the history of blue techelet dye. Readers and their little listeners can readily discuss all that together, along with the Hebrew halachic citations appearing here and there, plus the number-related facts about tzitzis toward the end of the book.
Femo clay figurines illustrate the colorful pages that hold text explaining how and why tzitzis are made, worn, and valued. The innovative spiral-inside a hardcover binding makes the big pages easy to turn and less likely to tear from little fingers pulling the wrong way.
The book is meant for kids under three.
