I Am Jewish American
(Our American Family)

By Elizabeth Weitzman
Rachel, a young girl living in Chicago, offers her perspective on the history, beliefs, and life style of her Jewish American community. In one-page chapters she touches on the reasons her grandmother's family left Eastern Europe, their journey to America, and their adjustment to a new land. She introduces topics such as the Sabbath, respect for learning, traditional foods, and her family's strong emotional and spiritual ties to Israel. Unfortunately, the author's use of the term "Wailing Wall" is no longer widely accepted; the preferred designation among Jews is now "Western Wall." The religious denomination represented is not identified, but a traditional, though not necessarily Orthodox, orientation is indicated. An informative full-color or sepia photograph faces each page of text. A useful and accessible book for children of all backgrounds.

The Bravest Fireman
After young Ari witnesses the fire department's efforts to squelch the flames in a burning house, he dreams of being "the bravest and strongest fireman." What makes Ari's ambitions a bit different from those of many other children is his Jewish faith; he believes that Hashem alone can give him the strength to do such an important and dangerous job. Zytman's brief, suspenseful story emphasizes the Jewish principle of performing mitzvos, or acts of service and obligation, for others. Placing this idea in the context of a common scenario proves an effective way to define a sophisticated concept for very young children.
