Avram's Gift by Margie Blumberg. 7831 Woodmont Avenue, Suite 312, Bethesda, Maryland 20814.
""A 2003 Notable Book for Younger Readers." -- Associaiton of Jewish Libraries Cleveland Jewish October 2003: The shofar's blasts will be even more meaningful after reading Avram's Gift by Margie Blumberg (Illus. by Laurie McGaw. MB Publishing, 2003, 48 pp., $17.95) and Arthur L. Finkel's The Easy Guide to Shofar Sounding (Torah Aura, 2002, 32 pp., $2.95 Paperback). The first is a handsomely illustrated storybook that combines a contemporary family's High Holiday observances with family history and an 8-year-old boy's decision to learn to sound the shofar that has been passed down to him from his great-great-grandfather. The Guide is amply illustrated with photographs and filled with "sound" advice. Both are for readers 8 years and older. Booklist October 2003: K-Gr. 1. Avram likes everything about his new house except the picture of his stern-looking namesake, his great-great-grandfather. He can't understand why his parents want to take the portrait out of the closet where it has been stored for years. The answer comes at Rosh Hashanah, when Avram hears his own beloved grandfather tell about Great-great-grandfather Avram in the Russian shtetl. It was he who taught Grandpa to "make music with his mouth" as if he were blowing the ram's horn shofar used during the holiday. The tale-within-a-tale comes full circle two years later when young Avram, inspired by his grandfather's story, blows the shofar at the holiday service. The story, which introduces some interesting holiday-specific terminology, is pretty light, but the painterly artwork is quite nice, adding a real sense of history. Connections across generations also come clear in a story that's as sweet as honey used for dipping apples. -Stephanie Zvirin [Note to readers: The reviewer mistakenly refers to Mark as Avram. While Mark's Yiddish name is indeed Avram, having been named for his great-great-grandfather, his given English name is Mark.] The Canadian Jewish News September 25, 2003: "A delightful, moving Rosh Hashanah story that teaches how each individual can deeply affect future generations. Exquisite watercolor illustrations by award-winning artist Laurie McGaw. Ages 8 and up." Jewish Book World Reviewed by Linda R. Silver December 2003: Mark is an eight-year-old whose affirmative attitude toward Judaism propels the plot of this well-illustrated chapter book. Just about the only thing that he doesn't like is a photo of an old, bearded, stern-looking man which his family reveres but that scares him. As the family prepares for and then observes Rosh Hashanah in the synagogue and at home, with food and friends and services woven joyfully into the story, Mark learns more about the old man, his great-great-grandfather, Avram. The tales that Mark's Grandpa Morris tells at the holiday dinner table flow backwards to his childhood when he was a boy of about Mark's age, then called Menashkeleh. They are familiar ones of shtetl life and immigration, revealing the stern-looking old man in the photograph to be the soul of kindness, whose gifts of love and a shofar traveled across time and space with Menashkeleh/Morris, who settled with his parents and sister in Baltimore. The full-color illustrations, which occur every few pages, are photographic in their realism and they capture the personalities and surroundings of both the modern family and the shtetl-dwellers to perfection. There is more, however. Once introduced to Grandpa Morris's zeyde, Mark is inspired to learn how to blow the shofar, Avram's gift that now belongs to him. Details about synagogues, about blowing the shofar and about its centrality to High Holiday synagogue services introduce an instructive element into the story. Time moves fluidly once again, this time forward to when Mark has just celebrated his Bar Mitzvah. He is asked to substitute for the shul's regular shofar blower on Yom Kippur and when he sounds the one great blast, " ge...dol...aaaa...ah" clear and strong, he imagines it sailing "to the very spot where his shofar came from, where his great-great-grandpa Avram sat..." An Afterword addresses readers directly, introducing them to Gary Stein, the real-life shofar-blower at B'nai Israel Congregation in Rockville, Maryland, encouraging them to learn to blow a shofar, and briefly suggesting ways for them to discover more about their own family histories. The story of Avram's Gift is imbued with a great deal of Yiddishkeit, told in a warm, earnest style that idealizes its subjects without distorting them. Mark is an unusually introspective eight-year-old but the illustrations allow readers of the same age to identify with him by showing him to be a typical American kid, with Senators, Orioles, and Colts pennants in his room, a contemporary looking house, family, and friends, and familiar toys. Librarians will do children, parents, teachers, and clergy a favor by connecting them with this affirmative book. For ages 8 - 10. Children's Literature Reviewed by Judy Chernak: How many of us have seen a portrait or photograph of some historical figure or ancestor with a stern look and a long beard and taken an immediate dislike to the scowling face? Mark has had a similar feeling towards his great-great-grandfather Avram, for whom he is named, since his earliest childhood. And, worse luck, that scary picture is slated to hang in the hallway right outside his bedroom in the new home thats almost built now. By contrast, Mark really loves his grandfather Morris, who will soon be coming for Rosh Hashanah. Mark learns about his grandfathers love for his own grandfather, the Avram in the picture, and about the gift he received from him as a young man leaving Europe for the New World, in this touching and intriguing story.

Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter Reviewed by Rachel Erlich Kamin, Temple Israel, West Bloomfield, Michigan February/March 2004: Avram's Gift is a Rosh Hashanah story, an immigrant story, and a story about contemporary Jewish life all in one beautifully illustrated chapter book bursting with Yiddishkeit. Eight-year-old Mark loves everything about his new house--everything except the portrait of his great-great-grandfather Avram. Why do his parents insist on hanging the old picture in their new house? Was Avram really as mean and stern as he looks in the picture? Mark learns to appreciate the picture of his great-great-grandfather after he learns more about him and about his great-grandfather's journey to America. Mark also realizes his dream of becoming the synagogue's shofar blower. Independent readers may find the two columns of text distracting and difficult; therefore, Avram's Gift will probably best be appreciated by parents and children who read the story together. They will learn about synagogues and shofar blowing with its centrality to the High Holy Day services. The glossary of Hebrew and Yiddish terms used throughout the story, including a pronunciation guide, is very complete and will be useful to readers unfamiliar with the language. For Grades 3 to 5. The Association of Jewish Libraries The New Jewish Values Finder Linda R. Silver, Editor Primary, Elementary: A well-illustrated short chapter book about an eight-year-old boy whose affirmative attitude towards Judaism and his family motivates him to learn to blow the shofar. The story interweaves the Rosh Hashanah observance of a modern Jewish family with shtetl ancestors, immigration, and High Holiday rituals in a Rockville, Maryland synagogue. McGaw's illustrations are photographically realistic and provide details that will enable middle grade readers to identify with the story.

And, to carry on with what I said in my previous review, you'll find more ideas in these two short story collections than you'll find in the careers of many novelists.

Queen Vernita Visits the Blue Ice Mountains by Dawn Menge. Barnes and noble and amazon.
" Author Dawn Menge with the able assistance of illustrator Bobbi Switzer have created a zinger of a follower to Menge's first book in this series. Once again the story is rich in many character types in her monthly visitors to her new palace in nature - the Blue Ice Mountains in the Land of Quails. She wisely uses the same format as in her original book - every month of the year is celebrated for the seasonal changes and every month the new visitor is taken on sightseeing trips that introduce myriad concepts of friendship, natural phenomena, animal behavior - all the while emphasizing the learning of the names of the months, of the days of the week, and of the various seasons and holidays. The drawings are perky and eye catching for children, and the story of the friendship of an elderly Queen with a terrific variety of visitors makes the book personal and education and very entertaining - and more than a bit of a nod to respecting elders!. This is an engaging second installment to QUEEN VERNITA'S VISITORS. Welcome to wholesome and entertaining children's literature!"

Aly's travails are very reminiscent of another elementary student that hated change and had a hard time getting things right - good ole' Ramona the Brat - and this author's first foray in youth fiction pays a nice homage to Beverly Cleary's star-crossed heroine. This edifying tale addresses a lot of contemporary issues that Christian students didn't used to face: special education and inclusion, home-schooling versus public education, and it imparts some great lessons.

"This is kid's book for adults. It didn't start out that way, but by the reviews I find that adults love the book and find that they have a new appreciation for crows. They do read it to their children who "think it is good." The Crows of Hidden Creek is an adventure story about crows that live on a golf course. One fledgling is particularly rambunctious and he gets in a lot of trouble. The worst of which comes when he convinces his best pal they should go on a trip and they join a murder of crows flying south. They get involved in a crow shoot and the trip becomes a survival adventure. Since the story is based on actual crow behaviour, the adults that read this book, say things like: "I now look at the crows that come to my backyard bird feeder and bath in an entirely different light." or "I am now on a quest to learn more about crows." or "In the summers I have a couple of noisy ones (crows) outside my window, and in the future I'll listen more carefully to their cawing." The Washington (DC) Independent Writers chose it as their book of the month for March. If you love crows, you will enjoy this book. J."

REVIEW:Reviewer: A reader from Sioux Falls, SD USA I am a high school teacher, and I highly recommend this book for all ages. I was astounded by the descriptive scenes, fantastic character development, and astonishing content. This book is a delight for all ages, and I would consider this book as apart of classroom curriculum in the english department. I can hardly wait for the next book in the series to come out. EXCERPT: Just then, the glistening displays of color turned to streaks of lightning with bangs of thunder. The sky that started out gray and mystical became evil and scary. Clouds blew overhead uncovering the bright moon. The breeze grew into a blustery wind that chilled Windy to the bone. She wanted to wrap the blanket around her, but she could not go back now. It was too hard, and she had made it a little farther now. Beware the gift, Windy, blew through the trees again. Beware the gift. Follow Windy, if you dare, to discover the gift that has been hidden in the trunk. The forbidden trunk in the dark attic just waiting to be unlocked.

Yo Ho Ho Merry Christmas by Michael Heierbacher.
"Every child dreams about what they will be when they grow up, a fireman, a pop star, or maybe an airplane pilot. As we get older that usually changes several times, but did you ever wonder what Santa Claus wanted to be when he was a little boy and how that would have changed Christmas for children around the world. Yo Ho Ho Merry Christmas is the fun and oft times crazy story of what would have happened if Santa grew up to be what he wanted to be as a little boy, a Pirate. Parents will have fun reading this with their kids and it is perfect for toddlers and beginning readers. The wonderful watercolor illustrations bring the story to life and transport the reader into a world of “what if”."

You and Me Bully Free by Frank Davis. 3 Howell Street Kotara. 2289 NSW. Australia.
"A book to help children understand the various types of bullying. One of the main reasons children don't tell anyone that they are bullied is because they are never taught why they should. Kids only learn about bullying when it happens to them. Schools don't want to admit any problem, then it's easier to keep a lid on it. Don't take my word for it, ask some other parents about it. The book is sold via Paypal outside Australia and it is well worth the $11 U.S. "
