Here is the World A Year of Jewish Holidays by Leslea Newman

Featuring lyrical text by Leslea Newman and rich illustrations by Susan Gal, Here Is the World is a joyous celebration of Jewish holidays throughout the year for younger children. Beginning with the weekly ritual of Shabbat, readers join a Jewish family through the seasons of the year and the corresponding holidays. In addition to the narrative text, each holiday features additional description in the back matter and a craft or recipe for young children.


These warm illustrations and cheery verses will likely build anticipation all year long. --Sarah Hunter Booklist (11/15/2014)

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
