    Little Bezalel is an Israelite slave who loves to collect “beautiful things.” Beauty, as we all know, is in the eye of the beholder. Into his little box go bits of shiny, scrapes of ribbons, stones, feathers, leaves and bugs. Much to the chagrin of his parents and fellow slaves, he persists. When he and the rest of the slaves are freed and told to leave their lands, they journey to a new life, taking only essential needs. For Bezalel, that is his box of pretties, to which he adds to on their jou Little Bezalel is an Israelite slave who loves to collect “beautiful things.” Beauty, as we all know, is in the eye of the beholder. Into his little box go bits of shiny, scrapes of ribbons, stones, feathers, leaves and bugs. Much to the chagrin of his parents and fellow slaves, he persists. When he and the rest of the slaves are freed and told to leave their lands, they journey to a new life, taking only essential needs. For Bezalel, that is his box of pretties, to which he adds to on their journey, also noting all that he sees that can not fit in his box. Then God tells Moses he wants a place to stay when he visits his people. A place with pretty things he can enjoy. “But we live in a desert!” Moses replies. Where are they to find such? Bezalel offers his box and is thusly appointed designer of God’s mishkan. It’s a sweet telling of Biblical verse, richly illustrated and endearing.

    A brand-new retelling of Bezalel and how he was the right person to design the Mishkan. Leah Berkowitz has crafted a charming story that reminds the reader that there are beautiful things surrounding us all the time and why it's important to seek them out.

    The kiddo and I both LOVE this book for its heart, the young hero at the center of it all (which makes it so relate-able, especially since - minor spoiler alert - my child ALSO loves collecting things that I have trouble initially seeing the beauty in; primarily, rocks), and its beautiful illustrations. Can't wait to stack our shelves with more books from this author!

    It was an interesting Jewish parable on...seeing the beauty (and the joy that comes with it) within the world and the role of artists during biblical times.

    We all need to see beauty in the world like Bezalel I believe that Rabbi Berkowitz’s beautiful book is a reminder for all of us to open our eyes to see the beauty that surrounds us in the world today.
