from the dust jacket of the 1942 Hebrew Publishing Company first edition
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.
