Title: Benny the Big Shot
Author: Tehilla Deutsch
Illustrator: Vitaliy Romanenko
This colorful tale about the green-eyed monster called “Kina” puts jealousy into Jewish perspective. Share it with children of all ages and let the relief begin. The surprise ending will knock some reality into prejudiced thought patterns.
The only way this boy-centered book could be better is if it were to be published in pink. Girls need to cope with “Kina” too. Benny the Big Shot is a good start.
