In Classic Bible Stories for Jewish Children, young readers will meet many of the biblical figures who have become a familiar and important part of the Jewish heritage. Among them are:
* the jealous Cain, who killed his brother, Abel, and was banished forever;
* the righteous Noah, who built an Ark and thereby saved humanity;
* the baby Moses, who was rescued by an Egyptian princess and grew up to lead the Israelites out of slavery;
* little David, who battled and defeated the giant Goliath against all odds;
* the legendary Jonah, who was swallowed up by a whale-sized fish;
* beautiful Queen Esther, who frustrated the plans of the wicked Haman and saved the Jewish people from extinction;
* the courageous Daniel, who refused the king's order to worship a false god and was therefore cast into a den of hungry lions.

And of course, there are Adam and Eve; Naomi and Ruth; the prophet Elijah; the wise King Solomon; the three friends of Daniel--Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego; and many other outstanding biblical characters whose unusual adventures will delight and fascinate children. As retold in conversational prose by Rabbi Alfred J. Kolatch, author of the best-selling Jewish Book of Why and Jewish Child's First Book of Why , the memorable Bible stories included in this collection are easy to read yet capture the flavor and excitement of the original narrative.
The colorful renderings by Israeli artist Harry Araten, who so beautifully illustrated The Jewish Child's First Book of Why, help immeasurably in bringing the tales to life. Classic Bible Stories for Jewish Children will provide every child with hours of reading pleasure.
