Alfie's Bark Mitzvah
Author Shari Cohen
Illustrator Nadia Komorova
Publisher Five Star Publications

This sweetly illustrated picture book features Alfie in his very own Bark Mitzvah celebrating his passage from puppy to dog. For Jewish children who will one day celebrate their own Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah, Alfie's Bark Mitzvah shows the joy of the celebration as well as the heart behind the ceremony. The is also a delightful introduction for non-Jewish children into the rituals and family preparation of the Jewish rite of passage. Alfie's dog family and friends are all rendered in soft, gentle affectionate illustrations.

A CD of songs by Cantor Marcelo Gindlin is included. Children will enjoy singing and dancing along to the bouncy songs and listening and singing the gentler, inspirational songs that focus on family and passing on traditions. The words for all the songs are included in the book.
