This week is "Shav'ua HaSefer" -- Book Week in Israel for the "People of the Book"
"Beginning June 6, book lovers from all over Israel will gather to read, write, discuss, buy and share in their common interest during the 46th annual Hebrew Book Week. With events and fairs taking place in every major city as well as in 50 of the country's smaller towns, access to the festival's speakers, discounted books, activities and shows will be just as close as...well, your own bookshelf." JPOSTAnd what does the Muqata recommend for younger readers?
If I were going to write a children's book that mimics my blog, this book would be it. I was captivated just by seeing the front and back covers -- the familiar (bulletproof) yellow buses that travel the Shomron...the title of the book...it's exactly what I would write about and illustrate.
Luckily for me, someone else already did the work, and put out this children's book (I hope to purchase a copy of it this evening)
Translation of the back cover:
A moving nighttime experienceI haven't read it yet, but it looks like a winner.
describing the yearning of a Jewish child
for a holy place in Eretz Yisrael.
A story that combines the past, present, and future
and infuses in the heart of the reader
a great love for Eretz Yisrael, of yearning, and faith.
Cost 50 NIS, shipping in Israel is 10 NIS.
Available at "book week" stands and fairs, and by phone at +972-2-997-6004.
All proceeds from this book benefit the school in Elon Moreh.
Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael
