Jewish Values: Ten Classic Jewish Children's Stories

Publisher: 
Place of Publication:

Publication Year:

Number of Pages: 
45 p.
Note: 
This collection of ten highly abridged stories - each limited to two pages - seems intended more for educational purposes than literary enjoyment. Most of the stories are from Midrashim, including ones about Honi the Circlemaker, Miriam, Jacob, and Rabbi Hillel. They will be welcomed by teachers with a few spare minutes to use constructively and each is followed by a few study questions. The large, overly-colored illustrations are banal and the book design is pedestrian.
