Review: The Clever Dreidel’s Chanukah Wishes

Cover-New500Perhaps it’s a bit early, as Chanukah (Hanukkah) is still months away and the first light of the menorah will only be lit on the eve of December 25, this year – but perhaps not. Is it ever too early to teach kids the value of gratitude and compassion?

The Jewish Book Council just published the following review of The Clever Dreidel’s Chanukah Wishes by Christine Maasdam.

The Clever Dreidel’s Chanukah Wishes by Sarah Mazor | Jewish Book Council

Mazor uses a clever dreidel to present thoughtful Chanukah rhymes, asking us to include every child in our Chanukah wishes. This clever dreidel reminds us to not take our basic comforts for granted. Each night’s candle lighting blessing graciously reminds young readers to wish that all children should be fortunate, have safe homes, warm beds, good food, cozy clothes and stable health. An appreciation of what they have is gently layered into the rhymes, creating an awareness and a meaningful opportunity for interaction with young children. The clever dreidel’s goal is to instill the wishes of love, peace, hope and bright futures for the children of our world.

Delightful illustrations by Biswas are engaging and purposeful, directly linking the artwork to each wish. The positioning of the candle lighting on the chanukiyah is illustrated on the corners of each page, providing easy instruction in candle lighting.

This book would be a welcome addition to early childhood and elementary school libraries and classrooms as source material for Chanukah and for furthering the discussion of mitzvot as well as for home reading.

This review is from: The Hebrew Alphabet: Read, Write & Color (A Taste of Hebrew for English Speaking Kids.) (Kindle Edition)
Are you looking for a captivating, educational book about the Hebrew alphabet? You’ll be happy to know Sarah Mazor has created just what you’ll love. Not only will you learn facts like there are twenty-two letters in the Hebrew alphabet, but also how to pronounce each letter, plus popular boys’ and girls’ names starting with each letter. Many other facts are included as well. For example, you’ll learn which Israeli cities start with each letter and some history about each of those places. I loved this book and learned so much from it. You and your family is sure to feel the same about it.
I highly recommend this wonderful book.

MazorBooks is delighted to announce its new release in the ‘A Taste of Hebrew’ series for English-speaking Kids

There are important benefits to exposing your children to more than one language. Research shows that multilingual-kids are better at, among other things, learning, planning, problem-solving and self-control.

By introducing your children to Hebrew, not only will you enhance their cognitive and behavioral development but also provide them
(and you) with a lifelong connection to the Bible and to Israel.

The Hebrew Alphabet: Read, Write and Color is a wonderful introduction to the names and sounds of the twenty-two letters of the aleph-bet. This entertaining, informative and interactive book familiarizes children with both the print and the cursive forms of the
Hebrew alphabet, each letter’s numerical value, over eighty Hebrew vocabulary words and much, much more.

The Hebrew Alphabet: Read, Write and Color is another installment in the ‘A Taste of Hebrew for English Speaking Kids’ MazorBooks series. This more advanced edition is recommended for children ages 6 to 11.

This book is part of a series called A Taste of Hebrew published by Mazor Books. The series includes books on Hebrew letters and numbers, as well. This time, the reader is invited to follow a traveling rainbow to Israel in order to learn the names of the colors in Hebrew along with two children named Ami and Tami. The text rhymes successfully and rhythmically which is not always achieved in children’s books of this kind. The illustrations are bright, cheerful and are filled with deep colors which seem to saturate the page. This creates an overall tone which is upbeat, young, and fun and which will attract young readers. On the whole, the book is age-appropriate and…

There is some useful material in the back which will be helpful for families in learning and teaching the Hebrew words including some grammar tips, charts with the masculine and feminine forms of the colors, and some additional bonus words which are related to the themes in the book. Throughout the book, the Hebrew words are transliterated into English and shown in Hebrew, as well. There is also a pronunciation guide for parents. Children will enjoy this happy frolic with the rainbow as they learn the names of colors in Hebrew.

Recommended for ages 3-8.
