Sneaking into Josh's backpack, the curious spider in this long-running series experiences his first day at his Jewish school. He hears the story of Noah's Ark, learns about being kind to animals, and observes the children painting, building with blocks, and enjoying a snack. When the youngsters return to the classroom after playing outside, Sammy is discovered. Their first instinct is to step on him, but Josh reminds them about their obligation to be kind to all creatures. This book is a departure from the previous "Sammy" titles in that Josh Shapiro actually sees the spider in this one. The bright cut-paper illustrations help to depict a typical school day. A welcome addition where the earlier titles are popular.-Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL

Would you like for your children to become more familiar with the Hebrew alphabet? Do your children enjoy yoga? In Alef-Bet Yoga for Kids, Ruth Goldeen, who is a pediatric occupational therapist and has a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education with a Special Needs emphasis, gives kids an opportunity to recognize the Hebrew alphabet in an experiential way by using traditional and modified yoga poses to become the actual letters. Not only can they see how to make alef, bet, and the following twenty symbols, as shown by Bill Goldeen's eye-catching photographs superimposed on the letters, but they also gain the physical benefits of stretching, strengthening, and balancing their bodies. There is a glossary that explains the different poses. Some parents object to yoga, but those for whom it is not a problem might find this book to be a good tool for both educational purposes and physical activity.Was this review helpful?
