Note: 
One of the best collections of Jewish stories ever written for children contains sparkling tales from Europe and the Middle East, told with clarity, fluidity and charm. Included are stories from the Talmud, some set in Chelm, and others from Iraq, Babylon, Palestine, Morocco, and Turkey. Some of the motifs, such as the bear who eats children or a tiny child no bigger than a thumb, will be familiar from non-Jewish folklore. Together, the stories exemplify Jewish values that have persisted over time. They also introduce children to some classic tales. The illustrations, the authors' notes, and the format are all outstanding.
