Sammy Spider, the character from the beloved PJ Library books of the same name, is touring the greater Palm Beaches, visiting Jewish preschools and kindergarten classes at the Arthur I. Meyer Jewish Academy, helping children explore colors, numbers and Jewish holidays. The four-foot stuffed animal was developed at t he Lorraine & Jack N. Friedman Commission for Jewish Education’s (CJE) Department of Jewish Family Life and “brought to life” by PJ Library grandmother and master seamstress Adele Simon. Sammy has a total of nine stops on his travels.
A special visit to our community by Sammy Spider author Sylvia Rouss is planned for February 2012, when she will be the keynote presenter at the Friedman CJE Early Childhood Educators Conference and headline four local storytelling family events.
