Portraits of Jewish-American Heroes Reviews
The reading level is listed as 9 and above. I bought it for a 10 year old who is a sraight A student and s very good reader, and it was too difficult for him to read. This book is more appropriate for younger teenagers up to adults. Also the font used is small and the lines of print are close tigether, which makes it even more difficult for children to read.
I bought this book for Chanuka for my grandson. He likes it very much. It is very good
In-depth bios of Jewish-Americans. Good timeline sequence at the back of the book. Another good book to use as a resource for learning about Jewish heroes.
My grandson loved it.
This is a great book to read to younger children who are not quite ready to read at this level. It's a wonderful book for older children as well as adults. I bought the book for my grandchild, & no, we are not Jewish; however, I taught my son all people are the same and to be respected. The best thing about this book is the wonderful artwork & some would call illustrations by Elizabeth Rosen. Everyone can find something to love about this book.
This book turned out to be not what we expected. It's very political and some of the people mentioned in the book never really identified themselves with Judaism. ALthough they may have made contributions to US, it is a far stretch to call some of them Jewish Heroes.
the portraits featured in this book were an odd selection of Jewish Americans. there are many great Jewish hero's that contributed more to our lives than those featured in this book.
