Day of Blessings: a fun new book about Jewish prayer

brachosFRONTcoverprintSMALL

Why wait until kids are older to start explaining the ideas behind Jewish prayers?  I created this book to share a new approach: explaining the series of brachos (brachot = prayers) we say each morning in a way that was clear and kid-friendly, not to mention fun. 

Don’t you love these little wooden dolls??? 

They’re doing something different on every single page of the book!  They’re a great way to get the point across in a way kids can relate to.

What you’ll find inside:

  • Full Hebrew text (with vowels!) of the 15 morning brachot (blessings)
  • Easy-to-read new English translations
  • Light rhyming verses to communicate core concepts
  • Fun, lively illustrations highlighting one key idea behind each bracha
  • Available in Print or Ebook form (Kindle, unlocked and convertible to Epub or any other form you like for reading on screen or device)

Check out the back cover of the book, along with a few sample spreads from inside:

Honestly, I want to share the whole thing with you – but the best way for me to do that is to send you over to Amazon where for the month of November (2015) only, you can buy the Kindle version for an introductory, new-release price of 99 cents.  It’s free to borrow if you have Kindle Unlimited, and as with all my books, the ebook is always free with purchase of the print edition.

I invite you to check it out over here:  Day of Blessings: Traditional Jewish Morning Blessings in Rhyme.
