Synopsis

A Coat for the Moon and Other Jewish Tales by Howard Schwartz, Barbara Rush

In this collection of fifteen classic Jewish folktales, the authors share some of the richest stories of Jewish tradition from countries the world over, including France, Turkey, Israel, Yemen, Egypt, and Iraq, thus opening up new worlds for young readers. Each tale, magnificently illustrated with a pen-and-ink drawing, reveals a specific Jewish value handed down from one generation to the next.

Reviews

An engaging and diverse collection of 15 folktales from Europe and the Middle East... each [opening] with a delightfully detailed pen-and-ink illustration. Schwartz and Rush present tales that are both enchanting and meaningful.
