What happens when we point out the beauty of Hashem’s world to our children?  They learn to notice, to appreciate, and to connect to the One Who created it!  

The Hidden Artist is a breathtaking new picture book from Hachai Publishing, all about the wonder, the variety, and the loveliness Hashem created just for us!  Illustrated by an artist known for her lifelike paintings, The Hidden Artist depicts amazingly detailed animals, fish, mountains, sea and sky.  Truly inspired rhymes tell the story of a young child who wonders, “With all this beauty, great and small, I wonder, “Who’s behind it all?”  

His journey to discover the answer makes this book a must have for every Jewish home.
