by Deborah Heiligman

Score: 3

© 2007, National Geographic Books.

Part of the National Geographic Holidays Around the World Series, this is an excellent introduction to the High Holidays for young children and their families. Pages filled with colorful pictures of Jews around the world celebrating Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur accompany simple explanatory text describing these holidays. At the back of the book, “More About Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur” contains detailed facts, a recipe, resources for more information, a glossary and other important information for the reader.

Overall, this is a wonderful book for those looking for an easy introduction to the Days of Awe. Alternatively, for those with young children who just want a simple explanation for what goes on at the beginning of the Jewish year. This can also serve as a wonderful resource for teachers to show that Jews live all over the world and have different customs for the same holidays.
