A children’s book – It’s Tu B’Shevat

Posted on: 10 January, 2011

It’s Tu B’Shevat by Edie Stoltz Zolkower, illustrated by Richard Johnson

This is a very sweet little board book, probably suitable for children over 2-2.5 and definitely enjoyed by three year olds.

The story is actually a simple, upbeat poem which tells you what you can do for Tu B’Shevat:  “Grab a shovel.  Pick a spot.  Plant a tree – it’s Tu B’Shevat!”  Plant it, bless it, appreciate what it gives back to you, enjoy it – and do it all again at the same time next year.
