Note: 
A story of two friends sharing their daily experiences as part of the Israelite community that left Egypt (at Passover) and travelled toward Mt. Sinai (at Shavuot). With just a few lines of text on each page, including one line in Hebrew, the story of camping in the desert, playing, fighting, and making up is one that children of today can enjoy. With each day, the reader also has an opportunity to mark the passage of time by counting the omer. Illustrated in loose, fluid pastels, with ample white space on the pages containing text, and with biblical and midrashic sources given, this is one of very few books directly related to the holiday of Lag B'Omer. A must for Jewish libraries!
