Let's Discover Mitzvot
Young children learn the place of mitzvot in their lives with this set of eight 4-page, full-color folders. Each mitzvah is explained in terms children can easily grasp, using questions, activities, stories and poems.
How do we teach children that mitzvot are more than just good deeds? How can we teach them to be fair, hospitable, kind, and compassionate - all in the context of Jewish practice?
These boldly alluring four-page folders help young children discover the place of the mitzvot in their lives. Eight mitzvot - one in each folder - are explained in terms children can readily grasp, using engaging questions, thoughtful activities, and evocative stories all enlivened by full-color photographs, vivid artwork, and a cheerful, colorful layout that leads playfully from one activity to the next.
A colorful Torah scroll in each folder reminds students that they are not just learning about good deeds - they are learning about mitzvot, commandments from the Torah.
Beginning readers will be encouraged by the simple poems and straightforward text, while age-appropriate illustrations hold the interest of non-readers as they follow along.
The "My Family and Me" section at the end of each folder provides suggestions for parents and children who would like to undertake simple yet meaningful mitzvot at home.
