Why We Chose This Book: Good Night Israel

This book is your child’s passport to some beautiful and historical sites around Israel. The pages are a great introduction to the many Israeli locations above and below land, in the water and in the air – as well as the country’s traditional food, native animals and festivals – each introduced at different times of the day.

Whilst reading descriptions of the various landmarks, there are subtle details in the book that can be explored with your child. Notice the Israeli soldier introducing himself and the varying degrees of religious dress amongst the characters in the book, or count the number of pets that join families at different activities.

This book is being shared with families in time for Yom Ha’atzmaut, the anniversary of the state of Israel being founded, and this year, a big birthday is being celebrated. Israel is 70!
