Jewish Values: All-of-a-Kind Family
Number of Pages:
The first in a series of five classic Jewish children's books. The family is introduced, their relationships with one another and with other important people in their lives - like the library lady and Papa's friend, Charlie - are portrayed, their life on the Lower East Side is explored, and their values are established. Taking place about one hundred years ago, it all seems so innocent, so simple. And yet, one of the great strengths of the writing and surely, an important reason for the series' continued popularity, is that it suggests fundamental Jewish American themes to young readers through the timeless prism of a loving family and lively, believable children. The ISBN is for a paperback version.
