Kimmerlman, Leslie Everybody says Shalom Random House, 2015. $17.99 PICTURE BOOK
This book is a little tour of Israel. Using very simple rhyming scheme,
of showing off where people say “Shalom” it takes the readers through all the
famous places. While the story doesn’t name the places, it does have a glossary
in the back of the book with more details. The illustrations are bright,
cheery, and fun.
An ideal book for a younger child who has family or religious
connections to Israel. I wouldn’t add this to the school library, unless maybe
to add to a country report. Though I would prefer a more challenging book for
that kind of research.
