A wonderful little book which shows the magic which the Jewish Sabbath/Shabbat/Shabbos can bring to Jewish children. It is told through the eyes of a little girl who cannot wait for Shabbos, and keeps asking her mother "It is Shabbos yet?" But there are still things to be done. It really conveys how much she is looking forwards to Shabbos, and when she says to her mother " I love Shabbos' it is with real feeling. The wonderful drawings really show the wonder of the child!

From School Library Journal:

PreS-K-Malkie spends the day helping her mother clean, shop, cook, and set the table in preparation for the Jewish Sabbath, asking after each activity, "Is it Shabbos yet?" Clearly intended for a religiously observant audience, this book has very limited appeal both textually and visually. The child's mother consistently answers her daughter's question with a "No, Malkie,-Now we have to-" leaving readers unfamiliar with the structured Orthodox lifestyle to wonder if the work will ever be done. The illustrations are reminiscent of those seen in early readers from the 1950s, sweet yet unremarkable. Given that the coming of Shabbos is considered a reason to rejoice, this book fails to convey the joy and warmth of this weekly celebration.-Teri Markson, Stephen S. Wise Temple Elementary School, Los Angeles

Review:

Malkie just can't wait for Shabbos. But there is so much to be done! This beautifully illustrated, full-color book helps children relate to Shabbos preparations with simple descriptions of all the household tasks that enliven the end of the week. --Book Description
