Join a young brother and sister as they take their very first airplane trip, all the way to Eretz Yisroel!

Reading this book is a great way to prepare toddlers for what to expect when traveling by air… from the busy, crowded airport, to waiting in long lines, to checking in their suitcases.  Once on the plane, they say Tefillas HaDerech, follow rules and instructions, and enjoy the flight.

“When the plane lands, it’s sunny and bright,

In Eretz Yisroel, my heart feels so light.”

The whole family goes to the Kosel, to Kever Rochel, and to Me’aras Hamachpeila.  They may be little, but even small children know it’s important to daven at these holy places.  And of course, they take a break to eat falafel, their most favorite treat!

Every aspect of this exciting experience is presented in a perfectly age-appropriate manner.  Like all the books in this valuable series, I Go to Eretz Yisroel highlights mitzvah opportunities, safety and polite behavior in every situation.


Toddler Experience Series This series, with its rhymes and gentle watercolor illustrations, helps toddlers prepare for – and share- some of the most basic everyday events in their lives.
