Children's LiteratureWith its buttercup yellow padded cover and pages, this album is a perfect gift for that new arrival of the Jewish faith. Along with the requisite spaces for family tree, birth statistics, and first photo, the album has pages for all the Jewish ceremonial and holiday celebrations. It's inclusive, having space for a Brit Bat—Covenant for a Daughter along with a Brit Milah—Covenant of Circumcision for a son. And all the Jewish holidays are allotted their pages, too. Mom and Dad each get their space to share their hopes and dreams for the coming child, and there's plenty of room for notes about growth, medical records, trips, special times and all the usual necessities of a baby album. The charming pictures have been collected from other Jewish Lights publications, as have many of the quotations, so if you have enjoyed the very popular offerings of this ecumenical, spiritually aware house, you will love this one, too. "May you live to see your world fulfilled/ May your destiny be for worlds still to come/ And may you trust in generations past and yet to be." A warm and comforting way to launch that newborn into a life that will surely be filled with other records, but none so special as this first one. 2003, Jewish Lights, Ages Adult.
