Great for making Shabbat a family time Feb 17, 2004
A good friend of mine uses this book at the Shabbat table with his preschool and elementary school aged children. It has each parashah and special notes for some holidays. The pictures are photographs cute of clay figures, so they capture the children's attention better than illustrations might. In addition the stories are short enough -- about a paragraph or two -- so that childrewn aren't squirming.
It's a great way to "shinantam l'vanecha"
A Big Help Sep 8, 2000
Thank you to Ms. Klein for taking the sometimes difficult, sometimes dry, and sometimes "mature" nature of the weekly Torah portions and making them accessible to kids. I use it with my own young children, who love the "claymation" art, and also with my Religious School third graders in my Torah lesson. If only there were accompanying worksheets or art projects! :)
