Jewish Book Council
“The author/photographer has taken a close look at Israel and has focused on the many vibrant colors found in the cities, towns, beaches and just about everywhere. Each page is devoted to a particular color and features several beautiful photographs, with the name of the highlighted color printed in English, Hebrew and transliteration and shows several Israeli sites with which children can become familiar. This is a simple, fun way for young children to learn some Hebrew vocabulary and begin to identify with Israel.” — Jewish Book Council
“This simple book offers several possibilities for sharing and viewing independently, as the photos are vivid and show everyday life, while the text is scant and serves merely to identify object names and color.” — Booklist Online
“The photographs are vibrant and exciting and will surely stimulate little minds to ask questions about all the geographical locations and Hebrew signage, along with teaching the important vocabulary of colors in Hebrew. More than just a color concept book, this one is a sure winner.” — Jewish Journal
“With sites including Akko, Jaffa, Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Giv’atayim, among others, Raz offers a pleasing survey of the country’s geography. A nice, basic introduction to language, Israel, and some of its vibrant highlights.” — Kirkus Reviews
