Children's LiteratureJoining the other successful "Very First Board Books" from Kar-Ben is this new offering with its opposites concepts. Each holiday in the year is depicted with symbols that are opposing: Rosh Hashanah has the shofar for LOUD and the prayer for QUIET; for Yom Kippur, "the fish was BIG, Jonah was LITTLE." This continues on through Sukkot, the harvest holiday; Simchat Torah, when the Torah is completed and begun again; Hanukkah with its candles; Tu B'Shevat, the New Year of the Trees; Purim with its masks and costumes; Passover with its favorite Seder traditions; Shavuot, the anniversary of the giving of the Torah to Israel and Shabbat with "this matzah ball is IN the soup, this matzah ball bounced OUT." Youngsters will delight in repeating the ups and downs, open and closed, and other illustrations of opposites, and the illustrations are quite adorable. A great gift for any time of the year, since each holiday is covered with its own page. 2005, Kar-Ben, Ages 1 to 3.
