RAY & TWINKLE

Written by Rona Exterman, Illustrated by Inbal Leitner

Ray & Twinkle are two friendly little gnomes who live inside our bodies.  When night comes, they travel from the tips of our toes through the body to the top of our heads, spreading golden night sprinkles from their big fluffy bag.

Ray & Twinkle takes the well-known Body Scan method of mindfulness meditation and turns it into a  picture book for children, bringing them gently into sleep, and introducing them to the wonderful world of mindfulness in a natural, engaging way.

HOW I CAME TO BE

Written by Shoham Smith, Illustrated by Noam Weiner

HOW I CAME TO BE is a totally different type of "where do babies come from?" book. The book is not designed to be read in one sitting, but rather lets parents choose the sections that are most relevant for their child's stage of development. Filled with humor and empathy, it even tackles subjects like IVF and sperm donations.
Written by one of Israel's premiere children's books authors, Shoham Smith, with the consultation of child psychologist Ruti Ben-Porat, and with engaging illustrations by Noam Weiner, the book is told from the perspective of a baby at a press conference.
