It's a Mitzvah, Grover! (Sesame Street: Shalom Sesame) Reviews
I bought this for my 2 year old nephew. He loves Jewish books and loves Sesame Street. When my sister received the book, she said that some of the pages are out of order and the first page of the book is repeated in the middle of the book. We emailed the publisher, but never heard back.

Grover sat in his little purple chair getting ready to write to all his friends about all his friends on Israel's television show, Rechov Sumsum. It was really a lot like Sesame Street and while he was there he learned all about "tikkun alam." When Grover first heard those Hebrew words from Brosh he scratched his head when he explained, "It means `repairing the world.'" The playground they were on was a BIG mess with broken swings and all kinds of litter scattered about. There was even a sneaker on the grass. Avigail and Mahboub were all excited and wanted to help clean up everything and "paint the swings, slide, and seesaw."
TITLE:� "It's a Mitzvah, Grover!" by Tilda Balsley and Ellen Fischer
Grover and his friends from Rechov Sumsum (an Israeli co-production of Sesame Street) come together to help out with tikkun olam (doing good deeds to help make the world a better place). A storm has gone through the playground and they come together to clean it up, which includes picking up debris and trash. They also have fun picking out what colors they want to paint the playground with and making new colors they can use by mixing some of those same colors together. There are examples described and illustrated throughout the story about how Grover and his friends each have done something to make the world a better place.
Do you think your little ones are to young to learn Hebrew? It's easier that you think with Grover of Sesame Street and some of his friends. Grover is visiting Israel and is invited to help a few friends clean up a neighborhood park after a storm. Brosh teaches him about Tikkun Olam, which means to repair the world. As a result Grover and his pals are doing a Mitzvah, which means doing something nice for others. Young readers will get a kick out of these wonderful characters. Readers will learn Hebrew, colors, shapes and even what items in the trash can be recycled. This fun colorful read introduces young readers to keep an open mind to cultures and new experiences.
