It's a Mitzvah!

Illustrated by Beck Feiner

This fun first taste of preschooler-friendly mitzvot is a very basic introduction to Jewish principles and to good behavior.

Clever, humorous illustrations accompany rhyming text about important Jewish do's and don'ts. From respecting parents and grandparents and feeding the hungry to telling the truth and repairing the world ("tikkun olam"), each page highlights a different mitzvah in a way that's engaging and totally relatable for kids two years of age and older. This adorable introduction to mitzvot doubles as an early guide socially conscious behavior.
