    Cute, with a good moral

    When Palestinian boy Samir breaks his knee, he must stay in a Jewish hospital for a special surgery. There, he faces his fears of Israelis and make a new friend. This is a cute story with the we're-not-so-different-after-all moral. Although it may resonate more strongly with the Israeli kids for whom it was originally written, its translation is a good addition to English-language children's literature as well. It was enjoyable and cute, and has a moral that every child in the world can benefit from.

    A Moving Piece of Work

    Samir and Yonatan truly captured my mind and soul for the week that I was reading it. It touched me in ways that I can't really describe. Knowing somewhat from my own experience and learning about the experiences of others, I feel that this book was a true to life acount of what it feels like to be in that situation. Five thumbs up!

    Not that Great

    We had to read this book for school, and i really hated it. I think the idea was ok, but i would probly not read it on my own or read any more of Ms. Carmi's work. i just think the story was a little slow for my taste. Everyone was so excited about it, but i dont know why.

    Children stole my heart

    The children in this hospital room came to life as my 3rd grade son read aloud some of the chapters. I insisted on reading a few chapters to him and found it difficult to put the book down. Lovely story. I hope author creates more like it.
