What colorful mitzvos come into your head
When you think of yellow — or brown, blue, and red?
All around the year, we do mitzvos with colorful objects: brown matza, green lulav, red rimon, silver candlesticks, and so many more!
Beautiful, sophisticated paintings depict each color scene, and every page is surrounded by a strong, bright border. The lovely rhyming verses will appeal to even the very youngest toddlers.
What a great way to learn colors and mitzvos! A valuable gift for every Jewish child to read and enjoy all year long!

Dena Ackerman-nee Heller-grew up right here in L.A. Although I didnt know her well, several friends spoke admiringly of her artistic talents, so surprising to find in a teenager with very little formal art instruction. Now all grown up, with a famiiy of her own, Dena lives in Israel, where she has turned her talents into a professional pursuit. Her first illustrating credit is the newpicture book, Red is my Rimon. Dena’s intricate watercolors accompany a simple rhyming text that will appeal to young readers, aged 18 months to 5 years. The elaborate detail lavished on each page will astonish the audience, who will turn back again and again to admire the life-like shofar, glittering gold keilim from the beis hamikdash and the satin dress on a little girl setting the Shabbos table. Dvorah Glick’s words will invite little readers to recall familiar life cycle events and dates on the Jewish calendar, and the laminated pages will help the book endure your childrens sticky fingers. Red is my Rimon is availabie in local Jewish bookstores and online.
