Reviews

"A peppy, lively Shabbat song full of spirit and cheer, Shabbat Shalom, Hey! is known to many children who love to clap to its rhythms and shout out the 'Hey' emphatically and joy-fully. In this bright, colorful picture book, Ann Koffsky has illustrated the song with humor and sparkle, bringing it to life anew. Her quirky, charming animal illustrations with their expressive facial expressions leap off the pages in consonance with the song's rhythmic syl-lables. Children will have fun turning the pages and singing along as the animals prepare a Shabbat table with recognizable symbols; the candles, challah, and kiddush cup are all there by the final resounding 'Hey.' " -- Jewish Book World

"Toddlers who attend Jewish preschools (and their parents) are no doubt familiar with this classic children's song, used to salute the Jewish Sabbath. Here the song is transformed into a narrative of sorts in which several animals perform the song while gathering Shabbat essentials. Toucan brings the candles; Snake brings the wine cup; Monkey brings the challah; and Lion prepares the table. Koffsky's vibrant cartoonstyle artwork is well suited to the celebratory atmosphere of this weekly observance. The colorful animals stand out against vivid background hues, and the decision to place the artwork at a 90-degree rotation from standard page turns allows for impressive vertical spreads that can be easily viewed in a group setting. Paired with Sylvia Rouss' Sammy Spider's First Shabbat (1997), this makes a good participatory piece: children shout the 'Hey!' refrain, and a QR code on the back cover links to a recording of the song. This will be welcomed by religious schools and public libraries where demand is high." -- Booklist
