It's a ... It's a ... It's a Mitzvah

In the Jewish tradition, mitzvah covers activities done by believers who are motivated by love, caring and sharing. In this delightful book for children 1 to 6 years old, Liz Suneby and Diane Heiman show animals responding to the question: "What is a mitzvah?"

book coverThey learn that it includes welcoming new friends, sharing food with the hungry, helping someone who is older, taking care of the earth, looking after the sick, giving charity and honoring one's parents.

These are ways of doing good in the world that Christian children can join in too (Jewish Lights).
