IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN ISRAEL

IF YOU WERE ME AND LIVED IN ISRAEL

 

Take a trip to the Middle East and let’s visit Israel and learn about the State of Israel also called Medinat Israel. Your home would be in the Middle East on the southern shore of the Mediterranean Sea. Judaism, Christianity, Island and the Bahai faiths believe it or not consider Israel as a Holy Land. You might live in Jerusalem which is one of the oldest cities in the world. The history of this city is described on page 4 and the picture of page 5 brings it alive and into your home allowing you to experience living there too. If you are a boy you might be named Noah and a girl Maya or Talia. What I called my mom growing up Ima and my dad Abba. Shopping with Ima and Abba in the Shouk or open air market you would be able to get just about anything from clothes, to good to assorted products. Halov is milk and lechem is bread and the money used is called shekels. For fun you would invite visitors to swim in the Dead Sea as you take a swim learn about the Dead Sea and why nothing can survive there and more when you read the beautifully illustrated story on pages 12-13. Visiting grandparents is like going to have a real feast. Smell the foods and check out what they make on pages 14-15. My favorite was watermelon, turkey and grilled meat. What’s yours? Football with friends on television and when you visit them you play outside and practice your track and field games. You work hard to get into the Maccabiah games which are international contests like the Olympics. Boys learn a form of self-defense called Krav Maga and sometimes little sisters try their hand at it too. Who can resist glida? If you want some find out on page 20 and 21 what it is and go and try some yourself. The author continues by explaining Purim and the customs and the history behind reading the Megillat and the celebration of the ancient Queen Esther who saved her people from the evil king. When you read in English you read from left to right in Hebrew from right to left. Do you know why? Find out how the ancient tablets required that someone hold the surface of the stone they were suing as a hammer and why it required a strong hand to hold it and why we write from left to right. Read pages 24-25 and learn more. Find out about school and what they learn about ancient and modern Israel in the biet safer or the house of books. A special glossary of terms at the end and students can do some more research about Israel long ago and today and learn why so many love to visit there and enjoy the food, the people and the customs. If you were me and lived in Israel live would be different and definitely exciting. For history teachers, elementary teachers, parents, study groups, clergy and young adults to learn about a special place that means so much to so many long ago and today. Illustrated by Kelsea Wierenga helping readers join in the tour and visit the country as once again author Carole P. Roman takes us on a memorable journey to the Middle East.
