School Library Journal - School Library JournalPreS-Boys and girls at a Jewish nursery school work together to prepare and bake challah, the traditional bread served on the Sabbath. They then sing, set the table, light candles, recite blessings, and enjoy the delicious tastes of challah and grape juice. A recipe for whole wheat honey challah is included along with the prayers in Hebrew, both transliterated and translated, for lighting candles, blessing wine, and blessing bread. The full-color photographs depict a happy group of children. Because there is no explanatory background, this book would best serve those already familiar with Shabbat observances.-Susan Pine, New York Public Library Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
