The Ten Commandments speak to every part of our lives and hold important values for children. Rabbi Jeffrey Glickman frames this traditional text in a way a small child can understand. Beautifully illustrated, this is a wonderful first book for parents who want to introduce their children to religious ethics. Translating the commandments from the original Hebrew, Rabbi Glickman teaches important life lessons: adultery is really about keeping promises; words are powerful, so use them carefully. Concepts including love, respect, and humility are tenderly presented. This treasure for young and old includes activities and discussion starters that parents and educators can use to teach children about each of God's commandments. Children will enjoy finding a surprise on each page! Cozy up with your child, because this book will be read over and over.
