This counting book with a Jewish twist is especially designed for toddlers and preschoolers..
Donny and Dina are a brother and sister who prepare for Shabbos together by setting the family table. They bring out all the special Shabbos objects, counting as they go.
“One silver cup,
All shiny and bright,
So Father can make Kiddush
On Friday night.”
Then come two fresh challos and all the numbers in between, until finally –ten nice napkins!
Large clear numerals opposite each set of objects will help even the very youngest children learn to count. Catchy rhymes and vibrant color throughout. The colorful chart at the end of the book provides an additional opportunity to review all the numbers from one to ten.
