Review:


A family takes a trip to the Machtesh Ramon canyon to celebrate Rosh Chodish, the beginning of a new month in the Jewish calendar. The children learn about the moon by looking through binoculars and a telescope. When the sun sets the family learn about why the moon looks like a sliver in the sky. When it's time for a snack the family makes pita bread over a hot fire. A bonfire is built to add to the celebration.


Young readers will enjoy learning about the Jewish holiday of Rosh Chodesh. Beautiful photography shows readers what this family does to celebrate. The back of the book has a very cool paper mache moon activity kids can create. Parents and teachers can use this guide to teach children about Jewish culture and tradition.
