The Jewish Children's Bible - 5 Volume Gift Set


By Sheryl Prenzlau
The Jewish Children's Bible series presents all the major stories found in the original Hebrew text. The simple, easy-to-read storyline is ideal for young children to understand and follow. More than 40 original, full-color illustrations bring to life the traditional weekly reading of the Bible that takes place in the synagouge.

A special section, Midraashim: Tales of our Sages, provides parents and teachers with additional information that helps clarify the Biblical events described in Genesis.

The five-volume set of The Jewish Children's Bible has an additional unique quality: It presents a full color edition of the appropriate Megillah or Jewish Holiday story read during the year. Exodus includes The Children's Haggadah, Leviticus includes The Book of Esther, Numbers include The Book of Ruth, and Deuteronomy includes Jonah and the Whale.

Description from Publisher

One of a series of five oversize and gorgeous volumes, this and the other volumes present the main stories of each book of the Torah in simplified language. Even very difficult concepts are rendered understandable to young children so that they can join in discussing the parshah (weekly Torah portion) each Shabbat. There's also a section of midrash (stories of the sages) to further engage inquiring young minds. Written from an Orthodox point of view, this volume and the series is suitable for everyone and is a monument to the work of its adapter, the Jerusalem-based author of the "Kid Sister" series. The artwork by Russian-born Smekhov, chief illustrator for The Temple Institute in Jerusalem, is quite breathtaking--realistic without being anachronistic, exciting without being stereotypical. My prediction is that children will actually enjoy every page, regardless of the topic covered, and will be eager to learn about their Biblical history, whether at home or at school.

G-d's Garden :
Children's Stories Grown from the Bible

By Adam Fisher
A good story has the power to delight, to teach, to captivate the mind and heart. The stories in G-d's Garden do all this and more--they engross children and adults in the narrative of the Bible. Based on the midrashic tradition, these modern stories complement each weekly Torah portion--filling in details "missing" from our sacred text, elaborating on biblical figures, and highlighting Jewish values.

G-d's Garden invites readers and listeners to live with and in the biblical text, to ask questions and imagine answers: What happened to Joseph on his way to Egypt? What occurred in Moses' childhood to create in him the compassion and sensitivity to others' suffering that were the necessary qualities of a leader chose by G-d?

Each story is accompanied by:
  • An introduction with key information about the story's biblical background
  • Values drawn from the story (The story of Joseph the dreamer demonstrates the value of helping others while dealing with our own hardships. The story of Joshua emphasizes our need to protect people in danger, and to ensure that children, the sick, and the elderly are cared for.)
  • Discussion questions linking the story to contemporary life
  • A list of story-telling props and tips


A values index and a glossary increase the effectiveness of G-d's Garden as an educational tool.

In the classroom, as part of a family Shabbat service, or as the source of a weekly bedtime story, God's Garden will entrance children of all ages in the wonder of Torah.

To Everything

By Bob Barner
The slightly modernized version of 10 familiar verses from Ecclesiastes splashes across double-page spreads with bold images and brilliant colors. The paper-collage illustrations in richly saturated golds, purples, greens, blues, and reds show large, stylized decorative flowers, birds, animals, and insects, and panoramic views of the day and night skies. The interpretations are exciting and thoughtful: for 'A time to be born, a time to die,' the picture shows a butterfly emerging from its cocoon, then huge and triumphant in full-wing spread, then dropping gently to the earth; 'A time for war, a time for peace' features a white dove with a glowing blue eye among flames and barbed wire. The multicolored, hand-lettered text sweeps across the pages as part of the overall artistic design. A guide for discussion of the various passages and pictures suggestions for related art activities are included.
