The Jewish Chronicle

Cover: A Concert in the Sand

“Brown-capped construction workers eating ryebread sandwiches; seltzer stands in the street, Hebrew posters in faintly familiar (but strangely undeveloped) streets…it is 1936 and Uri sits, bored, in his parents’ deli
in Tel Aviv, unaware he is soon to attend the first performance of the future Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, escorted by his German-speaking grandma. A Concert in the Sand, by Tami Shem-Tov and Rachella
Sandbank (Kar-Ben, £6.50) is textheavy for a picture book, so would suit a five- to seven-year-old, while Avi Ofer’s detailed crowd scenes are almost a historical Where’s Wally?”—The Jewish Chronicle (UK)
