The Sundown Kid

The Sundown Kid:
A Southwestern Shabbat
By Barbara Bietz, illustrated by John Kanzler
Published by August House Inc, July 2016

When a Jewish family emigrated to the West, they knew some things would be very different. They kept their traditional Jewish customs - the mezzuzah on the front door and the Shabbat meal, but they missed their family and friends from back home.  “Too much soup,” Mama said. “Not enough family.”

As they settle in, the young boy makes friends in their small town and invites them to share their Shabbat hospitality, finally making Mama happy at having a full table to rejoice in the blessings they have received.

This is a gorgeous little book for children, beautifully illustrated, explaining the concepts of hospitality and sharing the blessings of Shabbat in a simple and fun way. 
Reading it was a delight :-)
