A Jewish family joyfully celebrates the arrival of a new baby.

Why I wrote this book:

So many of my friends are having grandchildren—and great-grandchildren! Being an honorary auntie to them makes me very proud. I wrote Baby’s Blessings to celebrate the joy that new babies bring into the world.


Blessings in our house abound,
Newest is the wondrous sound,
Of baby whom we hold so dear,
crying out with joy, “I’m here!”
