Testimonials

Carol Campbell, Ph.D.

Professor of Education, Southwestern Adventist University, Keene, Texas

"Mommy, Is Today Sabbath? captures the essence of young children's inquisitiveness. The engaging narrative, written in verse, records a skillfully crafted dialogue between mother and son in anticipation of the Sabbath. Content is scripture-based. Multicultural illustrations enhance and extend the meaning of the text. Parents and children are encouraged to interact with the story in the final pages, by generating illustrations and responding to questions. Preschoolers as well as primary-age children will enjoy the format of this picture book, used either as a read-aloud or read independently."

Elizabeth Darby Watson, Ph.D., M.S.W.
"The author, understanding a child's mind, has designed a book that guides healthy parent-child interaction through a week with anticipated conversation and regular routine. Children like the expected, they want to know what's going to happen. Children like the concrete--it's got to make sense. Children like repetition--hearing the same predictable story over and over. Children like different voices--creatively imitating both adult and children's sounds and cadences. And children like to repeat and memorize--being proud that they can `read' (even before they actually can) what is familiar. Knowing this, Jacqueline Galloway-Blake captivatingly utilizes all these modalities to engage adults and children as they prepare for the best day of the week, the Sabbath. I encourage you to read and enjoy this wonderfully illustrated little book."

K.C. Harris, Al Manama, Bahrain

"I highly recommend this book for any parent with a young child who observes Shabbat. It is a warm and pleasant book that answers the questions many young children have about Shabbat. What makes it different? Why should I care? This is a book that provides a fun way to talk to your children about Shabbat and, see what we as parents may be able to do to make it something to look forward to and not just a weekly task for the children I highly recommend this book. There are wonderful activities in the back of the book you can do with your child and an area to place a picture so that you can make the book a keepsake to look back to from time to time. You won't be disappointed."
