Happy Birthday, World

“Happy Birthday, World” What better way to teach a young child about Rosh Hashanah than to emphasize its significance as the birthday of the world. Other aspects of this holiday are difficult for very young children, but they do understand birthdays! In this board book activities which children might do on their birthdays are compared to activities done on Rosh Hashanah. For example blowing birthday horns are compared to blowing the shofar and eating a birthday cake is compared to eating apples in honey.

In my preschool classroom we always celebrated Rosh Hashanah with a birthday party including an apple honey cake, shofarot and games. It was a great way to bring in the new year. Reading this book would be a perfect summary activity.
