Mrs. Henstein has a problem. The public road outside of her house is full of trash. Despite being very busy, Mrs. Henstein does her best to keep the street clean, but it is a hard job for one person to do alone. So she rightly asks her neighbors, who also use the road to help out, but everyone is far to busy. What is Mrs. Henstein to do? To her rescue comes little Effy. Despite not being long out of the shell, this little chick does a man's job and cleans up the street with his little broom. What lessons do the neighbors learn from his mighty effort? What lessons will you learn?
Effy Does the Job is a charming children's book. The story is told in sing-song type rhyming style that is a delight to read aloud to non-readers, and which new readers will find engaging. The text is accompanied by colorful and appealing illustrations that have an Israeli feel to them. The illustrations were drawn by Yoni Gerstein, and non-readers will enjoy looking at the illustrations as they listen to the story.
Effy Does the Job is the forth volume in the beloved Effy series. This delightful children's book was originally published in Hebrew as Efro'ach shel Imma, and was translated into English by Sherie Gross.
