Abba! Abba! (!אבא! אבא)

Abba! Abba!by Nira Harel (נירה הראל)
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Category: Boardbook (available in Hebrew only)

Hebrew Title: !אבא! אבא

Author’s Name in Hebrew: נירה הראל

Age: 1-3+ years

Synopsis: “Abba” is “daddy” in Hebrew and, in this sweet, rhyming book, toddler, Roni, has one word to describe everyone whom she meets on her walk through the neighborhood: "Abba."

Bilingual benefit: This book is a wonderful introduction to Hebrew for a toddler. It rhymes well, is relatable (every kiddie calls everyone “daddy” or “abba” in the beginning), and has a twist at the end. The Hebrew in this book has vowels for new or non-native Hebrew speakers.

Availability in Israel: This Hebrew language book is available in Israel in the major chains, Steimatzky and Tzomet Sfarim, as well as independent bookstores.

Previewing the book: While this book is not yet listed in Amazon, a quick Google search of images using the Hebrew title will yield a few excerpts.

Lil guy: A regular read in general and one of the most frequently requested Hebrew books.

Mama: Highly recommended. I would buy this again and for a friend.
