precious stories will bring a smile to any Jewish child’s face.

★★★★★ Praise for Shabbat Monsters:

“A children's book that manages to tie the themes of Rosh HaShanah--with its emphasis on making amends, with... Penguins! An unlikely combination? Definitely, and all the more enjoyable for that.”

“Shabbat Monsters is a sweet book of poetry that teaches kids about both Shabbat, and why the holy day is about more than games and good food. Lovely illustrations that really capture the essence of the story.”

“I read it to my 5 year old. We both loved the rhyming and the story. I occasionally stopped and looked at him for a moment and would ask, "what do you think?" He would smile and give his answer as he picked up on the moral of the story.”

“My 3 year old said "Read it Again Mommy!!!!"”

“They are not monsters in the scary sense, children will want to cuddle them rather than hide.”
