The Jewish Nature Series

This series takes a fun, lighthearted look at Jewish holidays through the eyes of adorable young animals.

Yes, it’s a little bit silly.  And no, the books don’t teach about the holidays… as such.

Lots and lots of books are already out there to teach your kids what to do on Rosh Hashanah or how we celebrate Passover.  These books are all about the fun, and the pure love of the festival.

Explore the spiritual significance of the holidays in a fun, new way
and greet the Jewish festivals together, with a smile!

★★★★★ Praise for Penguin Rosh Hashanah:

“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.”

“It is difficult to find Jewish holiday themed children's books that are well illustrated, fun to read, and brought down in easy and understandable language. This book does a great job at all three.”

 Otter Passover, by Jennifer Tzivia MacLeod Panda Purim, by Jennifer Tzivia MacLeod Penguin Rosh Hashanah, by Jennifer Tzivia MacLeod

  • Otter Passover:  When a young otter dreads having to say the Mah Nishtanah for the first time, a simple lesson from the holiday reminds her that there's more to celebrating Pesach than getting the words exactly right.
  • Panda Purim:  Not everybody looks forward to Purim.  One young panda has a lot on his mind before the holiday... but ultimately realizes he's kind of excited anyway.
  • Penguin Rosh Hashanah:  Rosh Hashanah is right around the corner. And, as children will discover in this delightful tale, featuring full-colour photographs of penguins in their natural setting, there are several important steps - beyond apples and honey - that go into preparing for a whole New Year.
