Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in another country? In this book, a boy named Yakir and his friends invite you to learn about their lives in Israel, a tiny country between the Mediterranean Sea and the Syrian and Arabian Deserts. Although it is located in a region with many great deserts, Israel has a variety of different landscapes and climates. In this book, young readers learn about Israeli children: their days at school and their lives at home, their families, what they do for fun—and even some of their favorite foods.
