A Coat for the Moon and Other Jewish Tales



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.


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.

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
