Using Literature to Build Jewish Values in Your Children


Let's go "Beyond the Book" with Dovid the Little Shepherd.

Ages 2-5

"Dovid the little Shepherd" is a story of a boy who becomes king. While tending the sheep, young Dovid displayed boundless care and concern for them. This essential trait is one of the characteristics that qualified him for the exalted position of king.

In Jewish thought, a king serves as a model for the Jewish nation. Unlike the kings of other nations, a Jewish monarch is not chosen for his physical strength and stature. Dovid was chosen to rule because of his devotion to G-d and the Jewish people, for his piety, Torah scholarship and refined spiritual qualities.

Going beyond the book, with Little Dovid, we can and must discuss two important lessons.

Little Dovid is alone with a dilemma -the larger, stronger sheep are out running the small and old sheep for the soft grass. All alone with no adults to ask he has to find his own solution. Once he defines the problem' he sets about to correct it. That is the goal for which all parents aspire for their children to be able to focus on what needs to be done and then do it! Point out the greatness of this "Little Great" who doesn't waste time agonizing over the size of the job or his isolation. We can go beyond the book to teach self-reliance, and true leadership.

Going beyond the book with "Little Dovid" takes us to philosophical heights when we ask the question "Will you know what to do if I'm not there?" How would YOU respond to someone saying "Come with me-I have a special gift for you" or "Your mother sent me to take you home." Do you know what to do if someone is choking, or spills hot soup on your arm or cuts a finger? Use this "Little Great" to build the concept of self-responsibility and self-reliance.
