Jewish is used very loosely here.

You are confusing Jewish with Orthodox

It didn't look like such a high percentage was un-keep-able.

Some are outright trash.
Some have questionable lessons.
Some are plain old boring and not a book I want to keep reading to my kids.
And some are worthwhile.

Either way, defintiely needs to be screened.

Any book needs to be screened before given/read to children.

Last Shabbos my granddaughter came to me with a Yiddish children's book asking me to read it to her (and my daughter also listened attentively). Which while many would consider this book to match their השקפה, I would actually keep it away. To summarize my problem with it, I found it an antithesis to the השקפה brought about in the maamar ביום עשתי עשר יום.

I don't think there's harm in the book, but definitely not something I would read again or recommend to anyone.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I'm no emoji expert, so not sure what you're trying to say.

I honestly think that in today's day and age, it is of utmost importance to instill in our children that we don't expect שכר, and that shouldn't be our motivation.
