Fifteen tales unique to Jewish culture concern fundamental teachings of Judaism, such as honesty, faith, charity or cooperation. The well-documented tales are drawn from ancient and modern Jewish sources around the world. The ten full-color paintings by Uri Shulevitz are perfect complements to the tales they accompany. A fine collection for family and group reading as well as for individual gifts. (Ages 5-11)
