Why We Chose This Book: Engineer Arielle and the Israeli Independence Day Surprise

Join Arielle as she travels around Israel celebrating the nation’s birthday with pride and passion – pride for her brother in the Israeli Air Force and passion for the Jewish history instilled in all the sites she passes on her train journey.

2018 marks a special anniversary as Israel celebrates 70 years of independence. Arielle visits Independence Hall, where David Ben-Gurion declared Israel a country in 1948, becoming the founder and the first prime minister of the state of Israel.

Children will enjoy recognising many sites in this book, engaging them in their own tour of Israel.
