Jewish tales from around the world.

This was a good compilation of Jewish folktales from many places. Some of the stories were very similar to other folktales I am familiar with, and some were brand new. I thought some of them were very unusual, to the point where I wasn't sure what the moral was. ( )

An excellent addition to a folklore collection.
For children and adults alike. Delightful illustrations. ( )

A beautifully designed collection comprises fifteen Jewish tales that span many centuries and come for the most part from countries of the Middle East, Africa, and eastern Europe. There are stories that readers will recognize as familiar tales, moral tales that teach lessons, and there is even a story about a giant who went with Noah on the ark. This book would be good for a lesson focused around the Jewish culture
