"The Book of Sabbath—Story
and Traditions, Songs and
Music," is a big sized book. It is
a book for children of all ages
and it will be found of immense
value by parents who share with
their children the knowledge im
parted in this book.
Published by Schulsinger Bros.
(21 E. 4th, NY 3), the book was
written by Rabbi Charles Wen-
grov, attractively illustrated by
Siegmund Forst, and the music
was edited by Samuel Bugatch.
An explanatory portion of the
title page provides the basic
data about this fine book and its
purpose. It reads: "being the
heartwarming account of Friday
evening and Saturday in the life
of one Jewish family, interwoven
with stories of adventure about
the Sabbath in days long gone
. .. written and illustrated espe-
cially for children . .. together
with a full collection of beloved
z'mirot and songs for the entire
Sabbath, from beginning to end."
