Inspirational yet full of humor, Wherever We Go! is a new Benny and Tzvi adventure all about making a Kiddush Hashem in public.
This time, the colorful characters visit numerous places that are familiar to toddlers. Wherever they go – the park, the museum, the farm or the zoo – Tzvi trains little Benny to be considerate of others, until the younger boy finally gets the idea.
“We won’t toss our trash in the air and not care,
But go find a trash can and stash it in there!”
The rhythmically rollicking verses make this book a joy to read aloud, and the bright, funny illustrations are full of adorable details.
In the most positive, encouraging way, Wherever We Go! speaks to the hearts and minds of children about bringing praise to Hashem through their everyday actions.
