The Picture-book History of the Jews

This interesting narrative of the Jewish People for younger readers will lead boys and girls into a more detailed study of the Bible stories, which have such color and variety and meaning in their legendry.

"It is no easy matter to condense and make convincing so big a story, but, as the children with whom I read this book said, 'The stories are put together well.'

"Its simplicity gives a kind of dignity that children appreciate. Certainly it will be interesting to all children." Phyllis Fenner, authority on children's literature, and author of "Our Library: the Story of a School Library That Works."

Ages 7 and up.
