Read full description of the books:



This is beautifully illustrated, and I've been looking for more stories for my daughter about aliyah and Jewish communities from around the world. I would have rated this far higher, except that when Yuvi and her family arrive in Israel, there is a passage that I really wish the Kar-Ben editors had done something with. Meeting Israeli women who care for the new olim, Yuvi comments that these are the first white people she's ever seen, and she 'thought they were angels'. Later one woman is referred to as 'the white angel'. The book is based on the actual childhood experiences of Yuvi Tashome, who worked with the author, but as a white American Jew looking for stories to share with her daughter, it's a problem for me to relay the idea that being white makes you look like an angel. It would have felt much better if someone had said to Yuvi that these ladies aren't angels, but Jews like Yuvi and her family, or something, but it stands alone, and it definitely makes the book less of a teaching tool for me as a parent.

Apparently B'chol Lashon gave this book their Media Award, so not everyone has been as put off as I was.
