GRANDPA AND ME ON TU B'SHEVAT
childrensbooksTu B'Shevat is celebrated in January or February and commemorates the environmental need to plant new trees. In a cumulative rhyme à la "The House That Jack Built," a little boy and his grandfather plant a seedling and watch it develop into an apple tree as they grow older, passing on to succeeding generations the tradition of caring for the tree and enjoying its fruit. The rhyme reads aloud well and is complemented by very basic block-style watercolors showing a little boy's development into a man who eventually becomes a grandparent, and a tree that is also changing and maturing.
Included are "Ten Great Ways" to enhance your Tu B'Shevat celebration.
