The Art Lesson: A Shavuot Story By Allison and Wayne Marks Review



Shoshana loves spending time at Grandma Jacobs' art studio and for Shavuot, Grandma Jacobs has a very special art project in mind! Shoshana learns how to make papercuts by carefully folding squares of paper and cutting shapes out of them. It sure isn't easy!  Can Shoshana create works of art as beautiful as the ones Grandma makes?

About the Holiday of Shavuot

The Jewish holiday of Shavuot is celebrated in the spring. It is called the Feast of Weeks (Shavuot means "weeks" in Hebrew) because it comes seven weeks after Passover. It celebrates the time that the Jewish people received the Torah on Mt. Sinai. Making paper cuts is a Shavuot custom. Shavuot is May 31, 2017.

About the Authors

English majors who met in a college Chaucer class, husband and wife Wayne and Allison Marks share a love for words and revel in a tale well-told. They enjoy spinning tales from the porch of their 100-year-old home in Akron, Ohio, where they raised twins, Elliot and Claire.

I received a complimentary copy.

Cassandra's Review-  A beautiful book full of color and a lesson that mean so much more!  I think little readers are really going to enjoy and learn how to make paper cut outs.
