Summary
Here is the world, ever changing and new,
Spinning with joy at the wonder of you!
Here Is the World is a joyous celebration of the Jewish holidays throughout the year for young children. Beginning with the weekly observance of Shabbat, readers join a family through the holidays and the corresponding seasons. From sounding the shofar on Rosh Hashanah to lighting the menorah for Chanukah to rattling a grogger for Purim, and on through the Jewish year, the joy and significance of each holiday beautifully come to life. In addition to the narrative text, there is a description of each holiday in the back matter along with an easy craft or recipe.

Praise for Here is the World
"Both lovely and eminently useful."
-- Kirkus Reviews

" Illustrating the change of seasons, Gal's charcoal and digital collage images effervesce with cheery colors, moving from the radiant gold, yellows, and reds of autumn to the greens and blues of spring--with a stop in snowy winter for Chanukah, of course."
-- Publishers Weekly
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Beginning with a naming ceremony for a new baby, a cheerful family with three children celebrates notable Jewish holidays throughout the year. The kids eat apples and honey while listening to the shofar on Rosh Hashanah, plant trees with their friends on Tu B'Shevat, don costumes and make lots of noise on Purim, and enjoy milk and honey treats in a wheat field on Shavuot. Each two-page spread pairs a rhyming couplet that very briefly introduces a holiday or season with a beautiful full-bleed illustration in a riot of colors. Gal's luminous, smudgy charcoal and digital-collage art captures the joyfulness and excitement of celebrating holidays with friends and family, and helpful seasonal markers big and bold sunflowers in early fall, windswept snowy trees in the winter provide useful context clues. Brief descriptions of the celebrations and some of their traditions are included, as well as an easy craft project or recipe for each holiday, some of which will require adult assistance. These warm illustrations and cheery verses will likely build anticipation all year long.--Hunter, Sarah Copyright 2014 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "For an observant Jewish family, a year continually offers cause for celebration-especially when a newly arrived baby sister kicks off the cycle with a naming ceremony: "Here is the rabbi, with blessing to share./ Here is a wish and a hope and a prayer." The simple couplets, which begin with the repeating phrase "Here is/are," for a dash of liturgical rhythm, chronicle a year of togetherness in the home, in the synagogue ("open to all"), and in the outdoors: "Here is the shofar, its sound pure and sweet," she writes about Rosh Hashanah, "Here are some apples and honey to eat." (In keeping with the lighthearted mood, Yom Kippur is represented by a delicious "break-fast.") Illustrating the change of seasons, Gal's charcoal and digital collage images effervesce with cheery colors, moving from the radiant gold, yellows, and reds of autumn to the greens and blues of spring-with a stop in snowy winter for Chanukah, of course. A glossary, crafts ideas, and recipes conclude the book. Ages 4-7. Author's agent: Elizabeth Harding, Curtis Brown. Illustrator's agent: Morgan Gaynin. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
