I Say Shehechiyanu

Kar-Ben, 2015 / ISBN 978-1-4677-3467-7 / Picture Book, illustrated by Monika Filipina

Follow a little girl and her baby brother throughout the year as she says “Shehechiyanu”, the beautiful blessing for expressing thanks when something takes place for the first time, or when it happens again after a long time. I SAY SHEHECHIYANU, written by Joanne Rocklin and illustrated by Monika Filipina, is a beautiful picture book suitable for all Jewish festivities, celebrations, and the proud “first times” of childhood.
