During their Shabbat walk in the park, Jodie and her dog Digger find the perfect birthday present for her archaeologist father.



I absolutely loved this book, which is much-needed, as resources for Jewish children can be difficult to find. The story is engaging and teaches about how wine was made and archaeology. There is also additional information about the true story upon which the book was based, allowing parents an additional talking point with their children. The illustrations are absolutely gorgeous and engaging for little eyes. There is just the right amount of detail, allowing plenty to look at without being too busy or distracting. A wonder book I highly recommend to those who practice Judaism or those who wish to teach their children about it and the Old Testament.

This review is based upon a copy acquired through the Goodreads First Reads program.
