It Wasn’t Easy

Tsruya Lahav
AGE: 3-5

Like every child, Moshe finds himself having to deal with fears and difficulties. These are not unique-all children experience them when they’re learning how to cope with the world around them.
Mom sends little Moshe to buy some parsley at the greengrocers. He goes by himself and at first he isnt scared at all, but then he suddenly gets lost. Although he`s all alone, Moshe gathers up the courage to walk up to people he meets along the way (they`re very nice!) and even asks a street performer to play his accordion for him. When he finds his Mom, Moshe tells her proudly how he managed to find his way home and his mother gives him a big hug.
This delightful book describes a childs first steps toward independence in poetic language and helps restore trust in people you meet along the way.
