Jewish Values: Abraham's Search for God
Number of Pages:
Softly colored but dramatic illustrations wash over all the pages of this midrashic tale of how Abraham found God. The little boy’s search is portrayed within a natural world of moon and sun, wind and thunder, rain and rainbows and his realization that a single unseen divine presence rules over the world develops in a way that young children will understand. Another version of the midrash is A Little Boy Named Avram by Dina Rosenfeld; this one is better illustrated.
