Board a make-believe plane and fly with our preschoolers to Israel to celebrate Yom Ha'atzmaut, Israel’s celebration of independence. The latest book in Kar-Ben's popular It's Time! series follows the young travelers as they float in the Dead Sea, munch on felafel, shop for souvenirs, and tuck prayers into the Western Wall.
Featured as a Recommended Multicultural and Anti-Bias Book for Children by the ADL's A World of Difference Institute!
