Cute little children's book where HaShem asks various critters if they were the best they could be. Of course, if you didn't see the cover flap and you were a Gentile, you would not know this was about Rosh Hashanah!

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0525479058, Hardcover)

Today is a special day: the birthday of the world, when God and all God’s creatures celebrate the beauty of life. As God asks each dear creature in turn whether it has been the best that it can be, this simple affirmation of life and goodness applauds the contribution that each and every one of us— from the mightiest elephant to the smallest child— can make. The whimsical animals in Alison Jay’s perfectly composed crackled paintings will make this a favorite book on the family shelf.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:23:47 -0400)

On the birthday of the world, all of God's creatures pass before Him as He asks whether each has been the best giraffe, or bee, or child they could be, helping to make the world a better place.
