Note: 
Aimed at children in the primary grades, this is a copiously illustrated overview of Israel that will be acceptable for introductory information and simple reports. Illustrated with maps and many color photographs, it is arranged topically into such subjects as location, geography, flora and fauna, history, nationhood, people, etc. The information is accurate, printed in large type, with ample margins. Reference aids include fast facts about the country, a pronunciation guide, a glossary, short list of books and websites, and an index. It is more fluently written than Adele Richardson’s Israel (Creative Education, 2006) and would be a good follow-up to Sammy Spider’s First Trip to Israel by Rouss and My Cousin Tamar Lives in Israel by Abraham.
