Jewish Values: A Ticket to Israel
Number of Pages:
Simply presented information about Israel is packaged attractively in this book for grades 1 - 3. The type is large, sentences are short, the coverage includes the people, geography, religion, language, customs and social life of both Jewish and Arab Israelis. The format includes photographs, some boxed information, and pictures showing the flag, Hebrew letters, a shofar, etc. Balanced in its brief mention of the Palestinian conflict, this is acceptable as an introductory work. Part of the "A Ticket to..." series.
