Celebrate: A Book of Jewish Holidays (Reading Railroad) Reviews
I debated about whether buying this book was really necessary, as a Christian homeschooler, but for $3.99 you really can't go wrong.
I ADORE this book! It is exactly what I had been looking for for a long time! It's written in a simple language, very easy to understand. It is perfect for a first read to learn about the main Jewish holidays and the background. It doesn't get too much into details, but enough details to understand the source of traditions. It's really great for both children and adults who are trying to learn about Jewish traditions. It's never too late to learn!!
Our toddler will be attending a Jewish preschool and we wanted a way to show their holidays/celebrations to her. What a nice surprise it was to learn them for us as well! This little book is colorful and very easy to read. Everyone would like it for its information and presentation. We learned a lot about the Jewish faith/holidays/celebrations and traditions we all could enjoy!
I really appreciate this book, as a stepping stone, for my boys to learn about, respect, and appreciate the Jewish culture. The holidays are broken down into fun and easy to understand sections, with vivid childrens illustrations. I was not afforded the opportunity as a child to learn about the Jewish religion/culture, and am very thankful that I have the opportunity to learn right along with my boys, as we journey through a homeschooling curriculum together. The author/illustrator did a phenominal job making this topic easy to understand and fun to learn.
Although I am more agnostic, I enjoy learning about religions and like to share the information with my kids. This is a great way for kids to learn more about the Jewish holidays that they see on calendars or, occasionally, encounter others celebrating/honoring them.
Easy to read; lots of bright pictures!
A terrific little book describing the Jewish Holidays, especially to those who are unfamiliar with them. It's written clearly for children, and was fun to read.
Great book but alot thinner than I expected, especially for the price.
