This series gives young readers from other parts of the world insight into various aspects of life in Israel today. Written and crafted by three authors currently living in Jerusalem, this series is the first of its kind to bring such insight to children. This volume introduces readers to Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu who has the distinction of being elected Israel's youngest prime minister, as well as one of its longest serving prime ministers. Netanyahu was born into an actively Zionist family whose own history mirrors that of Israel, her strengths and her struggles. A son, brother, scholar, soldier, and politician—each of these roles have shaped the leader Bibi is today.
