NEW RELEASE! All Aboard to Fairville

September 14, 2017

“It’s not fair!”

Is this a common refrain among your children? Do you find yourself grimacing when, once again, one child gives you a whole earful about how many more chores she has than her sister, and why did you ask her to set the table and not someone else, etc., etc., etc.?

Don’t worry—you’re in good company! The “It’s not fair!” complaint has got to be one of the most popular ones among kids, and that’s exactly what the story All Aboard to Fairville, written up in beloved author Rachel Stein’s newest anthology for young readers, addresses.

In this fun book specifically intended for 2nd to 4th graders, kids will meet lots of friends with issues and complaints just like their own—and they’ll see how these characters work to solve those issues and stop those kvetches, too! Written in large font, and with plenty of terrific illustrations, the book is perfect for kids who have just learned to read and now want to enjoy the skill, too.

So go ahead—introduce your kids to Shifra, Avigayil, Eli, Noach, and all the others in All Aboard to Fairville and Other Stories, and let their reading pleasure begin!

NEW RELEASE! Living with Honesty

September 13, 2017

You know those ads that you sometimes see in the Classifieds section of local frum publications: I may have scratched your Honda Accord on Monday, August 14, in such-and-such shopping plaza. Please call me at… When I read those ads, I can’t help but feel all warm inside. Ah… Who is like the Jewish Nation?!

But then sometimes I wonder: was that person obligated to do what he did? Was it a beyond-the-letter-of-the-law kind of thing for him to pay for the opportunity to perhaps be apprehended by the Accord owner, or was he halachically mechuyav to do it?

Rav Yisroel Belsky zt”l would get these types of questions all the time, and in Living with Honesty, readers are treated to a smorgasbord of such real-life questions that were actually presented to him—and his clear responses to these intricate—and fascinating!—she’eilos.

Are you allowed to copy a CD for your own use? What about taking time for personal matters at work? If your friend works in a restaurant and gives you free food—is that allowed? You’ll find Rav Belsky’s responses to all these questions and dozens more, in this beautiful book by noted author Rabbi Moishe Dovid Lebovits (himself one of Rabbi Belsky’s close talmidim).

The “honesty issues” facing our society these days are numerous; it is incumbent upon us all to find out the actual halachos governing these areas, such as dina d’malchusa dina, chillul Hashem, and geneivas da’as, and act accordingly. What better way to do so than by using Living with Honesty as a guide?

NEW RELEASE! When I Am a Mommy

September 6, 2017

Don’t you just love how the biggest guilt-chargers can be your own kids? The kid misbehaves, leaving you no choice but to give a punishment/consequence—and then she turns the whole thing on its head by complaining how unfair it is, and how when she’s a mommy, she will NEVER do this to her children. (Did we say that to our own parents? No, it can’t be…we were angels as children, weren’t we?)

Well, in When I Am a Mommy, an absolutely adorable book for young children, the author turns thattypical response of children on its head, raising lots of thought-provoking questions for kids to mull over instead of firing the next complaint at their parents.

When I Am a Mommy will make both parents and children laugh and think. Truly, this is a book that will be much beloved and appreciated by all!
