Ten Classic Jewish Children's Stories

Peninnah Schram, Author, Jeffrey Allon, Illustrator, Jonathan Rosen, Foreword by Simcha Media Group (NJ) $16.95 (45p) ISBN 978-0-943706-96-2
Schram (Jewish Stories One Generation Tells Another) retells 10 well-known stories from the Torah and the Talmud in this anthology. Stories such as ""The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars"" and ""Honi the Rainmaker"" capture the drama of creation and the powerful providence of God. Schram points up the humor and irony of human weakness and the wisdom of Rabbis Hillel and Shammai in ""Teach Me on One Foot."" A set of questions follows each story and helps reinforce its moral. Allon's detailed watercolors vividly capture the emotions of Honi, Abraham and Miriam. Allon's lifelike portraits and Schram's engaging prose ensure that families will return to these familiar tales again and again. Ages 6-9. (Dec.)
