Even Higher!: A Rosh Hashanah Story adapted by Eric A. Kimmel Illustrated by Jill Weber

Today is the first day of Rosh Hashanah ~ Happy New Year!   Last year I listed books that are classic stories for this and Yom Kippur, are still great books.  

Even Higher!: A Rosh Hashanah Story

Even Higher!: A Rosh Hashanah Story originally by I.L. Peretz and adapted by the wonderful Eric A. Kimmel with illustrations by Jill Weber is a wonderful Jewish folktale.   I have always liked this story because it tell of human kindness.  I always tell my nephews that they need to be kind to others and help when they can.   It is an important life lesson.   Eric A Kimmel is a prolific author who retells this classic story with his usual style.  This story talks of miracles but there really isn't a miracle just one person doing kind things for simple.  What a beautiful story to read on this special holiday.

Shana Tova!
