Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1

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

Children's Literature - Sara Rofofsky Marcus
Combining yoga and the Hebrew alphabet, this book encourages kinesthetic learning of the letters of the Hebrew alphabet, the alef-bet. Presenting one letter per page, with a child performing the pose superimposed over the printed letter itself, children will be encouraged to try these yoga positions using color photographs of their peers of a range of Caucasian and Asian races. A lack of representation in this book is of Black Jews, of which there is a growing number. The book ends with all letters and poses presented on a two-page spread followed by a defining list of the poses used for each letter and how the pose was adapted, as necessary. This is a valuable physical education book that focuses on body movement and awareness, along with a multicultural book to introduce a language of another culture. On the pages of each alphabet, the work lacks the name of the letter in the Hebrew alphabet, although the transliteration is provided. The author also presents ways that the book can be used and expanded upon in the classroom. Reviewer: Sara Rofofsky Marcus

    The Hebrew alphabet AND exercize

    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.
