And at night when they went to sleep they dreamed of the mushrooms:
Mushrooms - Umbrellas / Mushrooms - Boats / Mushrooms - Parachutes / Mushrooms - Sunshades / Mushrooms - Chairs
And more and more / and more and more / and more and more / and more and more / and more
[Hebrew words that rhyme with mushrooms]
They had lots of ideas for what to do with the mushrooms
Maybe you also have an idea? Uncle Simcha

I live on a five Shamgar street / in our house there are six floors and a basement.
Who lives in the basement? Haim the shoemaker.
And who in the first floor? - Ephraim the barber.
And on the second floor? - Dan the carpenter.
And who is in the third? - the doctor.
And the fourth? Moses the baker.
And the fifth? Dad, Mom and I. (We’re just neighbors).
- For now, I will not say! ...
... (and I will finally reveal the secret):
This is the uncle, Simcha ... The Louse Nechama

Once upon a time / on one head / of one child / there was an egg.
The child was small, / and the egg was even smaller. / The egg was very small.
Tiny. / Small-small-small-small-small-small.
What could come out of such a small egg?
Chick? alligator? fledgling? lizard?
From an egg so small it can come out / just a louse. Apartment for rent

In a beautiful valley, between vineyards and fields, stands a five-story tower.
And who lives in the tower?
On the first floor a fat chicken ... / On the second floor a cuckoo lives ... / On the third floor a clean Negro cat ...
In the fourth floor lives a squirrel ... / And in the fifth floor lives Mr. mouse.
But a week ago he packed his things and left. / No one knows where and why.
The occupants of the tower wrote a sign, / stuck a nail over the door, / and put a sign on the wall:
Apartment for Rent.

No one knows, but Itamar can walk on the walls.
And not only to walk on the walls, / but also to enter into pictures / and to experience fascinating experiences. The cockroach that cockroach enters his head

Here in the garden, you will meet a cockroach, who has an obsession in his head: he wanted to be the biggest and strongest in the world.
A small cockroach, with a growth frenzy really huge!
On this occasion you can (perhaps) also see who he abused, to whom he flattered, with whom he fell in love.
And at last you will find out how the same dictator who came to power, caused in his kingdom fires and calamities. Noa’s sign language

One morning Noa woke up from her sleep and asked: Mom, today is Monday?
No, Mother answered. Today is Tuesday. Monday was yesterday.
One morning Noa woke up from her sleep and asked Dad: Maybe today is Friday?
No, Dad said, Thursday / Friday will be tomorrow.
So it was twice / and three more times, / until she moved angrily.
Why does everyone know when it comes every day and only I am always wrong?
I need a sign so I can know like everyone else ... The fish that did not want to be a fish
Story: Paul Kor

Sculpture: Dorit Feldman
A small fish there in a pond all day crying.
"Oh, I’m so bored, I’ll be asleep for a little while longer.
Instead of singing, I get bubbles - enough, I’m tired of being a fish.
"Water water, it’s not good, all the time I’m wet!"
One day a wave said to him: "Do not be so miserable, until three if you only count -" you will soon become a bird. "
... all day to fly pretty hard and tiring said Bird in a broken voice:
"I want to be a mouse." But even a little mouse will not sleep or sleep,
The cat behind him - caution on the tail.
..We did not forget a word until the secret was revealed
Because it’s always worthwhile to be yourself - and that’s enough!
