This is a rhyming book in which youngsters are encouraged to imagine the absurd.
Zeegel’s book is reminiscent of Dr. Seuss but with a Jewish element.
The first time a Jewish name is mentioned, youngsters’ ears will perk up as the Jewish connection is unexpected and fun.
Jewish and natural elements are intertwined—on one page you are told to imagine if snow was not cold and a shofar was too heavy to hold.
The moral of the natural world is, “Hashem made it perfect,/ We all know that’s true/For him and for her,/For me…/And for you.”
Illustrations are fun and bright.
The imaginative is portrayed in exceptional color with funny depictions and incorporates the rhyme, for example a pictures shows ants drinking lemonade with ice while playing with dice.
Recommended for ages 3-8.
