This series gives kids from other parts of the world insight into various aspects of life in Israel. Written and crafted by three authors currently living in Jerusalem, this series is the first of its kind to bring such insight to children. These books correlate well to common core standards that ask students to read stories and literature, as well as more complex texts that provide facts and background knowledge in areas such as science and social studies. Students will be challenged and asked questions that push them to refer back to what they’ve read. This stresses critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that are required for success in college, career, and life.
