PJ Library is launching a new initiative to help you talk about Jewish values with your kids, chock-full of resources and suggestions.


This month, each kid will receive a special in-the-envelope gift – a DIY mishloach manot kit! Purim baskets are a nice way to show others you care, and these tips will share ideas of how to fill them up.
Check out PJ Our Way’s choices for February! Charlie Thorne’s adventures will put you on the edge of your seat, while Reuven’s brachot bee will have you rooting for him to succeed. Anna’s clever idea helps both her family and the war effort, while Jordan uses his unique gift to protect his village. Be it action, innovation, fantasy, or fun, you’re certain to find your next great read in this month’s picks. Choose your book by February 10th !

These 12 superstar kids were selected to create video trailers, polls, reviews, and blog posts for forthcoming books on the PJ Our Way website, and so much more.
