A Couple of Great Books

During our literature unit study on Christmas, we read lots of good books, but two stood out.

Star of Wonder is a beautifully illustrated retelling of the Christmas story. While it is a picture book, it is written on a higher level than most picture books, and the story is more complete than in most Christmas picture books.

One City, Two Brothers is a wonderful folk tale passed down by both Jewish and Arab families that tells how the city of Jerusalem came to be. It is a beautiful story of peace, hope and generosity.

We are adding both books to our collection.
