★★★★★ Praise for the Now You Know books:
“Everything I already knew about Israel is there and described much better than the other sources of information I have studied. With an insiders insight the author included and explained many other aspects of the country.”
“I now know that Chanukah celebrates a double miracle; that the historical event it commemorates fundamentally shaped New Testament Israel; and that as long as it’s fried, it’s Chanukah food. Why and how? Read the book to find out, and for a rich appendix of further details, folk tales, and a glossary of Jewish terms.”
“Fun, amusing, and very informative! There were some things I didn’t know that I didn’t know, and I found myself running to check that my Chanukiah is Kosher! (whew! it is!).”
And don’t forget the lapbooks to make your kids’ reading of this book truly interactive…
