Even the very youngest children know that a mezuzah is something special. But they may not know that a mezuzah needs attention and care.
In I Kiss My Mezuzah, a young brother and sister help their father take down the mezuzahs and bring them to a sofer to be checked. Do all the letters look clear and beautiful?
The sofer shows them how he does his work and what is written on each mezuzah scroll. The children see a Sefer Torah and a pair of tefillin, too!
At home, when the mezuzahs are put back in place, what do you think the children do then?
Written in simple rhyming verse, with soothing watercolor illustrations, I Kiss My Mezuzah is sure to become a favorite in every home and classroom!
