Overview

Hebrew is a very, very old language. It was spoken in ancient Israel many thousands of years ago and has been kept alive for centuries by Jews and scholars. Modern Hebrew was the dream and work of a man named Eliezer Ben-Yehuda. He made new words from ancient words and gave Hebrew speakers a way to say modern words such as ice cream, bicycle, and airplane.

This illustrated children's book serves as an introduction to the modern Hebrew alphabet; but more than that, it is a joyous portrait of a very special family. Its heroine, Gabi, shares in the activities of five-year-olds everywhere. She dances, she pretends, she dresses up, she helps with the baby. Her exuberence about her life bounces off every page, and the enthusiasm and warmth of her family surround her, and the reader, with love.
