Jewish Values: Stories from Adam and Eve to Ezekiel

Publication Year: 
2005
Number of Pages: 
192 p.
Note: 
This compilation contains thirty two Bible stories, some of which are rarely found in children's books. It is an attractive book, with heavy, creamy paper, plenty of white space, and full page color pictures every few pages. The telling is straight-forward, with a formal, biblical tone of voice but with vocabulary clarified. The drawings provide emotional immediacy and have a cinematic quality, employing dramatic perspectives and unusual points of view. The perspective is not strictly Jewish but the author uses the term "Hebrew Bible" rather than "Old Testament" and the neutral dating "BCE." A solid, if not exciting, addition to the Bible story collection.
