A delightfully charming and entertaining picture story book to share with children,
Hannah and Abba Hebrew for “Dad” are spending time together in nature on Tu B’Shevat, the Jewish Arbor Day. As Abba rests under a carob tree, Hannah declares that she wants to climb a tree. The carob tree’s trunk is too skinny, but can she climb a eucalyptus tree or a pine tree or an olive tree? When each poses a challenge for being too scratchy, for not having footholds Abba offers new inspiration for climbing and insight into what Hannah and the carob tree share in common.
