9780060275013: Sound the Shofar!: A Story for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur

It's Rosh Hashanah, and the loving family of Hanukkah Lights, Hanukkah Nights and Hooray! It's Passover gets ready once again for another holiday. After a special dinner, the family goes to synagogue to hear Uncle Jake sound the shofar and bring in the New Year. Ten days later, it's Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. With simple text and glowing illustrations, this story captures the rituals and importance of the ten special days called the Days of Awe or the High Holy Days that Jewish people all around the world celebrate.

About the Author:

Leslie Kimmelman is the author of Dance, Sing, Remember; Hanukkah Lights, Hanukkah Nights; and Hooray! It’s Passover! She lives with her family outside of New York City, and until recently she was an editor at Sesame Workshop, which is where she learned to count so well.



John Himmelman is the illustrator of Hanukkah Lights, Hanukkah Nights, and several other children's books, including the popular Buzby, an I Can Read Book by Julia Hoban. He lives in Killingworth, CT.

From Publishers Weekly:

The creators of Hanukkah Lights, Hanukkah Nights, hit a high note with this picture book about the traditions surrounding the Jewish High Holy Days, or Days of Awe. The house is abuzz with excitement as the relatives gather to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and then 10 days later, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. In this time of prayers, good food and good times, Uncle Jake plays a special role: he will blow the shofar, or ram's horn, during the service at the synagogue. Kimmelman includes a wealth of information about the tastes (challah and apples with honey), sights (the stained glass synagogue windows) and sounds (the shofar, the cantor and the rabbi) of the holiday season in her energetic text, making it highly accessible to very young children. Himmelman's cozy, lighthearted paintings feature an extended family?including a spunky litter of orange tabby cats?enjoying themselves and reaffirming their Jewish faith. Ages 3-6.
