Big Books are ideal for group story time. The larger, colorful illustrations make details more easily seen by children in a shared story time. The story becomes more visually engaging and helps to develop attention and listening comprehension skills.
A birthday celebration for the trees? Read along and learn about Tu B’Shvat and the celebration that surrounds it. Beautiful illustrations highlight what trees do for us, what we do on Tu B’shvat, and saying a b’rakhah to show we are thankful when we eat all the varieties of fruit that we enjoy at this time. On each page, the children are asked critical questions that ask them to explore trees to do design their own celebration.
