Baby's Bris

Product Details


PreS-Gr 1-The day Sophie becomes a big sister is the day she first learns about "happy tears." It is also the first time she hears the word "bris," referring to the ceremony of circumcision held on the eighth day of a Jewish boy's life. As the days of waiting pass and family and friends gather, the little girl feels overwhelmed and wonders if everyone was this excited over her birth, but her loving family reassures her and helps her understand that she has a part in bringing her new brother into the circle of Jewish life. This nicely constructed story deals with a delicate topic in a manner suitable for young children, while the warmly hued watercolor-and-pencil illustrations convey the family's love and devotion to their traditions. The book includes an author's note "About the Bris."-Teri Markson, Stephen S. Wise Temple Elementary School, Los Angeles Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.
