4.0 out of 5 stars Before We Eat Aug. 26 2010
By Jewish Book World Magazine - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
The ten words of the blessing on bread, HaMotzi, convey profound meaning and gratitude. With fifty-one words and adorable color illustrations, the youngest readers are introduced to these concepts. Although we are hungry, we thank God before we eat. We appreciate that "good food, a home, a family, are gifts that God has given me." A beautiful double spread of a wheat field shows the source of grain for the bread, and a transliteration will help with the Hebrew pronunciation. While the Hebrew blessing translates to "Who takes bread out of the earth," a more accessible "Thank you God, for the blessing of bread, and for the meal which we will now enjoy" accompanies the transliteration. Simple rhymes and clear pictures are appropriate for the board book format. The verse can be easily memorized and used at home as well as in school. This book is highly recommended for pre-readers up to age three, and one hopes for a companion After We Eat about grace after meals (Birkat HaMazon). Reviewed by Kathe Pinchuck

5.0 out of 5 stars This charming board book containing a "thank you prayer" will help the young preschooler participate during family mealtime! March 14 2010
By D. Fowler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
Teaching young preschoolers the importance and beauty of prayer can begin with a simple board book they can comfortably hold in their hands. Little children quickly learn to assimilate and appreciate Jewish culture, life and its holidays when they are able to participate. The "Hamotzi" is the most well known and frequently spoken Hebrew blessing recited before eating the bread. This small poetic book is one that shows appreciation for the gifts God provides families.

Baruch Atah Adonai,
Eloheinu, melech ha'olam
hamotzi lechem min ha'aretz.

Thank you God,
for the blessing of bread,
and for the meal
which we will now enjoy.

This charming board book containing a "thank you prayer" will help the young preschooler become aware of and participate in family mealtime traditions. Jacqueline Jules's ability to create the perfect sing song verse is evident in this small book that introduces the Hamotzi. "Bread and butter on my plate, / I'm so hungry, I can't wait." This verse makes it all the more appealing to little ones. The artwork is simple, colorful and appealing. If you are looking for introductory Jewish material for your preschooler this book in the series, "Very First Board Books," is one you might want to add to your list!

4.0 out of 5 stars Rhyming Text and Bright Illustrations Oct. 29 2013
By Fern Richardson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
My toddler enjoys this book for it's rhyming text and bright illustrations. I like that it gets across an important concept (being appreciative of the food we have) with easy to understand text, which includes the actual blessing on the last page. I also appreciate that both men/boys and women/girls are depicted preparing for the meal and serving the food.

I'm always looking for ways to teach our sons (3 and 1 yrs)about Judaism. This book is simple and to the point. They enjoy looking at it while I'm cooking dinner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book before meals Sept. 4 2011
By Kirstin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
Our son loves this book! He loves to point out the foods, people, and animals and the story line is just long enough to get the idea across but short enough to fit in with his limited patience right before the meal! Love this book!
