NEW RELEASE! A Story! with Rabbi Juravel 3: Shalom and Simchah

November 30, 2015

C417Shimmy and Bayla are at it again. Today  it’s about who gets to sit in the coveted red chair for supper; yesterday it was about who got their bedtime story read to them first; and last week it was about…oh, who even remembers what last week’s fight was about? Whatever petty issue it was, it was enough for Shimmy and Bayla to bring out the war troops and launch into a full-blown attack on each other, right in the Bergers’ very own living room.

When will these kids learn to have shalom, and to be happy with what they have, without always looking over their shoulder at what the other one got? Mrs. Berger wonders to herself in exasperation. I wish there was someone who could really teach them about the importance of shalom and simchah. What peace of mind and joy that would bring me!

Well, Mrs. Berger, you wish has just come true! Rabbi Juravel, everyone’s favorite storyteller, is back once again, ready to teach your children all about these golden middos—and help them behave with such middos, too!

Who can resist the wonderful stories Rabbi Juravel tells over, and the charming, inimitable style in which he says them? He really has a way with kids, and these books are the perfect venue for teaching impressionable children the proper way to act.

There’s a reason kids keep clamoring for more Rabbi Juravel books. Buy A Story! with Rabbi Juravel 3: Shalom and Simchah—and you’ll see for yourself!

NEW RELEASE! Sat on a Hat

November 27, 2015

C415It’s one of the most amazing sights to watch: the moment when the light bulb goes on in your child’s head and she realizes that the ABC’s she has learned can actually join together with each other to form words—and that she can actually read those words! C-A-T spells cat. R-U-N spells run.

At this point, the best present you can give your child is a book full of such words—a book that she can read all by herself.

And that’s exactly what Sat on a Hat is. It’s an adorable I-Can-Read-Myself book that tells the funny tale of a boy who gets his first black hat—and then loses it. Now it’s up to the boy to search all over town and try to find his missing hat.

The pictures are colorful and engaging, drawn by well-known illustrator Dena Ackerman, and the clever rhyming text, written by none other than Bracha Goetz, popular author of dozens of children’s books, will make your beginner reader grin with excitement as she sees: Hey, I can read this book all by myself!

Of course this book is not in the purview of first-grade children alone. Younger children who have not yet learned to read will enjoy this book, too, as you sit and read it to them.

So no matter what the ages of your little ones, Sat on a Hat is a wonderful way to invest in their enjoyment of books and reading in general. Keep in mind that frum I-Can-Read-Myself books are hard to come by, so it would be wise to go out and buy your copy now, before they all sell out…

NEW RELEASE! Pillars of Smoke

November 24, 2015

L766Not for the fainthearted. I’d seen this warning on books before, and I’d never thought anything of it. Just another advertising gimmick, something to pull people to buy the book, right?

Now, Pillars of Smoke actually does not have this caveat printed on its cover, but if it did, I wouldn’t discredit it so quickly. Because this book is really not for the fainthearted! With Hamas terrorists turning out to have completely different identities, and supposedly faithful members of the Israeli security system turning out to be…well, not so faithful after all—and this in addition to the drama and emotion with which this book is so rich…believe me when I tell you to prepare for a roller coaster ride when you pick up this book!

Whether you’re one of those readers who crave an action-packed suspense novel, or you love an emotional saga in which human feelings, fears, and backgrounds are explored, Pillars of Smoke, which contains both elements, is a book that you will love. It takes thrillers up to the next level. Read it…you’ll see exactly what I mean!

NEW RELEASE! Have an Olomeinu Chanukah

November 18, 2015

C414When you hear someone mention “Olomeinu,” does a nostalgic smile appear on your face? Does your mind begin to conjure up colorful, glossy pages, exciting covers, and some of the most terrific stories and articles you’ve ever read?

If you’ve answered yes to these questions, face it: you are an Olomeinu fan.

Don’t think you’re alone, either: to date, there are thousands upon thousands of Olomeinu fans out there. Three generations of Jewish children across North America and beyond were nurtured on the beautifully-presented information that filled the pages of Olomeinu. No matter what other reading material might have been around, Olomeinu was always so full of wholesome goodness, kids just seemed to gravitate to it. With writers like Rabbi Zevulun Weisberger, Rabbi Eliezer Gevirtz, Leah Dolinger, Leah Herskowitz, and Rena Kaplan, among many others, Olomeinu was a lot more than a magazine; over the years, it evolved into a real educational tool and became a mainstay of chinuch in the frum world.  

And though the monthly Olomeinu magazines are currently no longer in print, don’t think the Olomeinu days are over just yet… With compilations of Olomeinu stories being released as full-sized books, you can now continue to enjoy Olomeinu just as before!

In Have an Olomeinu Chanukah, readers of all ages will delight to find classic Olomeinu material—all on the topic of Chanukah. True stories, fictional ones, interesting tidbits and articles…it’s all in here!

Makes a great Chanukah gift for that avid reader and/or Olomeinu fan in your life!
