Jewish Book Council Review
by Michal Hoschander Malen
Ezra and his family are planning on making Aliyah, moving from the U.S. to Israel, and Ezra is not quite sure how he feels... MacLeod provides a reassuring note for children contemplating this major life change. The text is accompanied by color illustrations and some photographs as well as a glossary in Hebrew and English. The book is geared to an Orthodox reader both in terminology and illustration but can be useful for any family considering Aliyah or for a child who has a friend or relative planning the move.
Recommended for ages 6-10.
