When the boy in this story wakes up on Saturday morning, he’s ready for a leisurely day of togetherness with friends and family. Since he’s blind, he uses all his other senses to experience Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, to its fullest. Written in both printed text and Braille, this sweet story is a reminder of what a Shabbat shalom, “peaceful Sabbath,” is all about.
