    Great Resource

    This is a fabulous book for a family or classroom. A chapter is dedicated to each letter of the Hebrew alphabet. First the letter itself is introduced along with some interesting facts about it and some special words that begin with the letter. Next follows a short story retold from the Torah (Bible). the stories themselves follow the chronology of the Torah and build on one another. They are retold in a very engaging way. At the conlusion of each chapter is a list of ideas/activities related to the letter. The end of the book is a treasure trove of information and a great resource with more information on the letters and on the background to the stories, ideas, and words that were introduced in the chapters. I have been reading this with my four year old son and he loves it. I actually have to put a limit on the number of letters (chapters) we will read at each sitting because he always wants 'just one more.' As engaging as it is for him, it is also interesting for me to read and the background is excellent. It is a book that can be used to introduce the alef bet as well as biblical stories. This is the type of book that can be read again and again, either outloud as a family or to oneself. I imagine that as children get older they will continue to appreciate this book on deeper levels.
