little bee. (Our Neighborhood). Aug. 2024. 22p. Board $9.99. ISBN 9781499816655.
Baby-Toddler–A lovely, although slight, introduction for babies and toddlers to the pleasures of the holiday. Cheerful illustrations rendered in pleasant, soothing tones showcase a diverse extended family celebrating Rosh Hashanah, gentle smiles ever present. Simple couplets, most comprised of only two words per line, are easy to read out loud and neatly suit a baby’s attention span. Readers looking for more of an explanation of what Rosh Hashanah means and why it is celebrated may find this book overly simple; but for those looking to share holiday books with babies and toddlers, this book is a lovely way to introduce the holiday as a time for family to come together to eat, play, and celebrate.
VERDICT A friendly, simple celebration of Rosh Hashanah, best suited for the very young.
