Introductory Hebrew


I have linked the books to Amazon.com, but I have linked certain items to other booksellers when Amazon didn't carry them.

As a warning, I have put up pictures of the book covers to give you somewhat an idea of the style of each book (I know, I know. "Don't judge a book by its cover") so the pages may load slowly.

Jewish Artwork by Esky:
Children, Borders, Hebrew Alphabets
(Vol. 2)
Graphics include: Tzedakah, Mezuzot, Children's Hebrew Blocks, Siddurim, Smiling Torah, Children in School, Hebrew "Letter People", and more!

There exists today a seriously unfulfilled need for creative tools in Jewish Education, particularly for well made and effective illustrations of Chinuch objects and concepts. We are grateful to Mrs. Esky Cook for her devoted efforts to meet this need. Blessed by Hashem with quite extraordinary talent, she has dedicated this gift to the service of Hashem and the educational needs of the Jewish people. This devotion and these efforts have produced a series of books that depict Mitzvos and Midos Tovos in vivid and eye catching illustrations that will surely be of benefit to teachers and parents alike in the elevation of students and children of all ages.


It is with great pleasure and anticipation that I recommend this series of reproducible artwork by the supremely talented Esky Cook. Esky has completed the monumental task of culling an exhaustive collection of wonderful clip-art, reflecting pure Torah values and child pleasing charm. The response of teachers, students and parents to this series is sure to be uniformly enthusiastic with people clamoring for more. All of us who are dedicated to providing our children with the finest learning materials possible to enhance their love of Limudei Kodesh and Midos Tovos are deeply in her debt.
