Young children may wonder about the value of the “small” simple mitzvos they do every day.

In Dov’s Mitzvah, a truly wonderful chain of events begins with a small act of kindness performed by a young boy.  When Dov sees a rock in the middle of the sidewalk, he’s afraid someone will fall, so he moves it away.

It only takes a second, but the impact of Dov’s mitzvah grows and grows, as his example inspires others to perform more and more mitzvos of their own.

Dov may never know how his mitzvah affected the community around him, but your child will!

Fascinating, full color illustrations help bring the message home to children ages 3-6.
