A young child waits for something special as he plays with the cat, makes challah with Daddy, paints a picture with Nana, and takes a trip to the grocery store. Finally the waiting is over, it’s Shabbat! Bright, cheerful illustrations of a multi-ethnic family add a modern, inclusive dimension to this warm portrait of Shabbat preparation.
