Mommy, more stories -- please!” Many a mother (and father) has heard this plea from children who have listened to A Treasury of Jewish Bedtime Stories over and over again. There is no shortage of storytellers, but few have mastered the craft as well as Shmuel Blitz and his great illustrator Liat Binyamini Ariel. So when their bestselling Treasury evoked calls for more, they went back to their writing table and easel -- and this new book is the happy result.
This book is filled with stories of great Jews, in their youth and maturity; charming, inspiring, enjoyable stories; stories that are models of behavior; stories that show precocity; stories that show compassion; and stories that give parents springboards for loving messages about present behavior and future goals.
Your children will want to hear these stories and enjoy the illustrations over and over again. And they’ll be able to, because the book has a sturdy, child-resistant binding.
When your little ones clutch this book as they fall asleep, they’ll have the stuff of good dreams in their precious minds.
