?What makes a person a Jew? Is it the way that they look or the things that they do?? Using simple rhymes, language and photos children can relate to, this bright, friendly book helps preschoolers and young readers (3?6) understand that you don?t have to look a certain way to be Jewish: Judaism is in the heart and in the head, not a matter of skin color or country of origin. Reflecting the changing face of Judaism in America, it gives Jewish children who don?t fit the stereotype of what a Jewish person is ?supposed? to look like the chance to see themselves represented in a book about the Jewish People, while educating all Jewish children about what it really means to be a Jew.
