Description Information
   128, [2] pp. quarto 219:146 mm., usual light age staining. A very good copy loose in the original printed boards.
   Illustrated text book for teaching children to read and write in Hebrew. The text of Sifat Yeladim begins with the Hebrew vowels, each below a picture of an object shoes Hebrew pronunciation includes that vowel, for example, a fish, hand, and screw for kumaz. The following pages continue with simple pronunciation exercises and additional illustrations. As the text becomes more advanced the proportion of text to pictures changes, but even towards the end, when there are complete reading assignments the stories are accompanied by illustrations, for example, a story entitled the boy and the poor man has a depiction of a little boy giving charity to an old man. Another story, the snow man has a picture of a snow man with some boys in the background. Sifat Yeladim has a table of contents on the verso of the title page, followed by an introduction from the authors. At the end is a Hebrew-English glossary of terms. The front cover has an illustration of a a bearded teacher pointing to the blackboard while the class, all wearing yarmulkes, looks on attentively. The back cover has a list of educational books for children available from the Hebrew Publishing Company.
