This month, Jewish Child’s Day has partnered with PJ Library to sponsor the June books as well as gifting every child their own ‘Give As I Grow’ height chart. The chart uses the beautiful illustrations by Hsinping Pan from the book Be Kind, written by Naomi Shulman (Storey Publishing, 2019), which is being sent to 5-6 year old PJ Library subscribers in the UK. Suggested mitzvot (good deeds) from the book have also been included to inspire children to help others as they become taller. We want to remind children that while it is fun to mark off how tall they get over the years, they should try and spend their time seeing if they can help others along the way.
In the words of Abraham Joshua Heschel “When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire kind people.”
In addition, JCD are also running a very exciting competition to win a Fire Tablet HD8. Take a photo of your child standing next to their height chart and submit it to www.jcd.uk.com to be in with a chance of winning. Good luck everyone!
