Gr 1-6- This is indeed a Jewish Bible, written by Jewish authors, and successful in its inclusion of many popular stories retold in a lively, child-friendly style. Realistic and colorful pencil-drawn illustrations add to the telling, and as a treat for curious minds, the small photographs on the sidebars are really interesting. Readers can get a quick idea of what lentil stew probably looked like ("Esau and Jacob"), the ancient gift of a nose ring ("Isaac and Rebekah"), or archaeological ruins such as the present-day remains of Hezekiah's Tunnel. A corresponding Hebrew translation of each chapter heading opposite the English titles helps authenticate this as a Jewish Bible. The volume would be most appropriate for family use due to the addition of a professionally produced story CD encased in a plastic sleeve within the front cover, which is engagingly read by a pleasant-voiced narrator.-Lisa Silverman, Sinai Temple Library, Los AngelesCopyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

Charming and educational stories tied to Torah text. Children from 8 to 12 should enjoy reading and listening to these creative, engaging tales which contain important cultural and moral lessons.

my 5.5 yr old is very curious and is really looking forward to getting this book soon. We checked it out at the library beforehand and she really enjoyed it. Most important she liked learning new words and listening to stories of Q. Esther, Ruth, and K. David. I was so impressed by this book, I decided to get it for the holidays!!!Was this review helpful?
