This is a wonderful book for every Jewish child. It can be bought for babies, since it is a board book, but would also be a nice present for preschool-age child. The pictures in it are gorgeous and the words are very sweet. As the book progresses, it builds up to the first refrain in the Sh'ma. It is a peaceful book and a wonderful way to end the evening.
wow, what a beautiful book! too be two or three years old and receive this as a gift, i'd never have let it go. this is an art book.
