Book Review: Tu B'Shevat is Coming! by Tracy Newman, Illustrated by Viviana Garofoli

This review is meant for parents, teachers, and other people that work with children to read.

This is an interesting book for children that explains about some of what makes Tu B'Shevat the holiday that it is. It describes the kind of weather that often happens during it, what kids may do during it while exploring (riding bikes, hiking), digging holes for planting seeds, what kind of trees that are often planted, what to fill up your plate with while the holiday is approaching (plus more), all the while continuing to announce that Tu B'Shevat is coming. When Tu B'Shevat is finally here it shows what people may do to celebrate its arrival.

I like that this book explains what Tu B'Shevat is without really coming right out and explaining what the holiday is about, I believe that will help children to imagine what it is and its meaning on their own.  What it explains is done to prepare for the holiday will also help children see how fun preparing for Tu B'Shevat can be. I believe the fact that the story keeps saying that Tu B'Shevat is coming will create a lot of anticipation and excitement about the holiday for children!

My review= 5 out of 5 stars

I received this book free for the purpose of reviewing it.
