Dov Dov and the Man Who Forgot is a charming collection of children's stories that is perfect for reading out loud to your youngsters, and it makes for a perfect read alone book for young readers. This is the second book of four, by Yona Weinberg, that features the young Dov Dov and his friends. These lovely stories are accompanied by colorful, full page, illustrations, by Liat Benyaminy Ariel.
The Dov Dov stories are wholesome tales filled with Yiddishkeit and worthwhile lessons that teach children about the wonders of Torah and the world that HaShem has created for them. These are fun to read stories that teach without being didactic. Children will love to read or hear these stories over and over again, and most important, even parents will enjoy reading these stories - over, and over, and over again. This is extremely important, especially if your kids are like my little one, who once they find a book they like, they want to hear it over and over again until they repeat the story from memory!
