This text was prepared by William Gross:
Literacy has always been a primary goal for Jews throughout the Diaspora. Even during he dark ages the knowledge of reading and writing was maintained. The study of the Holy texts was impossible without these skills and such study was the goal of every Jewish male. Education began at an early age. There are many books and single sheets in the Gross Family Collection that are testimony to the efforts made for teaching.
A children's book for learning Hebrew, the volume contains verses in vocalised Hebrew, forming rhymed riddles. The answers are in the back of the book. There is a charming illustration of playing children on the fromt page.
