Overview

The Doodle Family takes off on an expedition to discover the secret of the Jewish Months. They learn where the names of the Jewish months come from, how the symbols of the zodiac reveal the essence of each month, and how both the sun and the moon determine the seasons of the Jewish calendar. Each beautifully illustrated double spread has an unforgettable rhyme children love learning and repeating.

The Doodle Family cartoon is syndicated in over 40 newspapers in the United States. There are already seven books featuring the Doodles, so children are familiar with these colorful characters. This is the first time that the Hebrew months have been graphically displayed and explained to young children.

"The Doodle family will help your child discover the secrets of the Hebrew month. Each beautifully illustrated page is filled with unforgettable rhymes which children will love learning and repeating"--Cover, p. [4].

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 5-Reudor charges through the Jewish calendar presenting a virtual barrage of cartoons, colors, and an odd mix of childlike poetry and extensive, though shallow information. He introduces a confusing mix of historical and contemporary cartoon figures, silly and serious text, and astrological information with a Jewish twist. Each two-page representation of a Jewish month includes a "frame" around the cartoon reminiscent of an animated version of a Greco-Roman stage, including a singsong rhyme. Below the frame is a listing of events that happened that month utilizing sophisticated language with no elaboration. Major holidays earn an additional two-page spread (Passover shows a ridiculous Moses leading a chortling band of costumed characters across the desert). Unfortunately, the book takes readers through the calendar year without providing much of the 5000-year historical context that created it. Though there are tons of facts, there is no sense of chronology. Skip this overly ambitious, frenetic hodgepodge.-Mary R. Hofmann, Rivera Middle School, Merced, CA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
