Unfortunately, this will probably be for a long time.

When my son was in kindergarten, the teacher suggested we read him parsha stories at home. I'm not so good at just winging it from the text, so I looked for a book to help. I found lots of books out there -- some with teensy 2-paragraph summaries of an entire parsha, some that made no distinction between torah and midrash. Then I found these. They are superb.

Poster: Aleph Bet Puzzle
18x24, full color
$8.95 each for 2 or more
Order code: POaleph

The funkiest Aleph-Bet poster you've ever seen! Each letter is formed by a picture; the clue is the initial sound of the English word, matched to the Hebrew letter's sound. Gimel is Girl, Tet is Telephone, SHin is SHip, Kof is Cough, and TZadi -- well, that's a hard one, which was solved with piZZa.

The poster was done by Susanna Spektor Yaari of San Diego, and is a delightful idea for a child's bedroom poster, or a Hebrew School classroom wall decoration.
