Description


"Author Alyson Solomon and illustrator Bryony Clarkson, the same team who created Thank You: Modeh Ani, are back with the equally lovely picture book Listen: Sh'ma . . . a welcome addition" --Belinda Brock, Sydney Taylor Shmooze

From bathtime to storytime to cuddling, young children of all sizes, shapes, ethnicities, and abilities get ready for bed with loving parents and caregivers. Poetic text prompts children to connect the sounds of bedtime to the Sh'ma prayer, traditionally said at bedtime to express love, peace, and the Oneness of God.

The Sh'ma is one of the oldest and most foundational prayers of the Jewish religion. It implores us to listen. This gentle introduction for young children helps them sound out the very beginning of the prayer and to begin to glimpse its meaning. By slowing down the first word--shhh, mmm, ahhh--this quiet book helps them hear the sounds of the world around us and within us.
