Note: 
A charming group of preschoolers take an imaginary trip to Israel to celebrate its birthday on Yom Ha’atzmaut. Cohen’s clear color photographs show the children pretending to have their passports stamped at Ben Gurion Airport, sampling a variety of tasty Israeli foods, floating in the Dead Sea, praying at the Kotel, learning to read and count in Hebrew, marching in a birthday parade, and then returning home. All of the play-acting is set in a preschool classroom, so readers will join the children in the book as they engage in creative fun. Like similar books by Cohen and Latifa Berry Kropf, the photographs show stimulating educational environments and developmentally appropriate practices in the teaching of young children.
