It wasn't what I expected. I actually thought it was the Jewish alphabet and it is not.
Jewish traditions, customs, and religious practices are highlighted and illustrated in this alphabet book.

The words are in rhyme. The entire alphabet is at the top of all twenty-six entries and the highlighted entry from each page is in bold face. Below the linear alphabet, the highlighted letters are drawn to represent the letter, as well as to depict the chosen word. There are also additional words beginning with the same letter scattered on the page. This enlarges the Judaic theme and expands the child's vocabulary. Some of the alphabet choices are stretched a bit, such as using C for cloth illustrated as a tallit, or D for dipping (apples). The artist uses bold colors and integrates the letters into the illustrations creatively. This is the first book by both author and illustrator. This book is a fine introduction to many Jewish terms and symbols for very young children.

For ages 3-6.
