I am Israeli: The Children of Israel
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in another country? In this book, a boy named Yakir and his friends invite you to learn about their lives in Israel, a tiny country between the Mediterranean Sea and the Syrian and Arabian Deserts. Although it is located in a region with many great deserts, Israel has a variety of different landscapes and climates.
Israel s main language is Hebrew, but many of the country s children have grandparents who came to Israel from far–away nations and spoke many languages. What do those children have in common with you? You can decide for yourself when you read this book. You ll learn about Israeli children: their days at school and their lives at home, their families, what they do for fun—and even some of their favorite foods.
