About

Overview

This series gives young readers from other parts of the world insight into an aspect of life in Israel today. In The Experience of Israel, young adults see the land of Israel through the eyes of a long-time tour guide and author, Gil Zohar. With stunning full-color photography, this book is a delight for readers of all ages. These books correlate well to common core standards that ask students to read stories and literature, as well as more complex texts that provide facts and background knowledge in areas such as science and social studies. Students will be challenged and asked questions that push them to refer back to what they’ve read. This stresses critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills that are required for success in college, career, and life.
