Note: 
The rich colors of nature are as abundant as the olive harvest in this story of a child’s first participation in the harvest in her family’s olive grove. Simple sentences with a large font accompany the delightful photographs as we learn all about different olives – which ones are for eating and which for oil – and the process of getting them from the branches to the olive press. Readers will appreciate the genuineness and realism of the story and it will also appeal to young children as an example of how family members depend on one another to accomplish goals. Harvest of Light can be a springboard to talk about Israeli families, industry, and even how oil is used to light the Hanukkiyah.
