This book is a very simple book that describes the different things that can go on involving Jewish traditions, and they describe them through the use of sounds. Children learn through the world around them and some of the first things they learn from are sounds. The use of sounds in this book
Show More
allows children to connect the sound to the object and event within the Jewish culture. The usage of the two media helps make the idea more relatable and connect more to the child with more than just pictures showing what they use within the culture. The teacher could use this book during a lesson and make the sounds with the students so they feel a part of the book and actively learn by doing so. This is book also revolves around multiculturalism and can be a great way to describe the differences people can have. This can be used during the holidays especially because rather just spouting out facts and knowledge it is a fun interactive way to learn.
