Jumping In And Other Stories
Sometimes you can't walk, you've got to run. And sometimes you have to do even more: You have to jump right in. So come on, jump right in! Jump into Libby Lazewnik's wonderful stories and meet some fabulous new friends. Friends like: Shimshy, who thinks he's a coward, even after he's saved someone's life; Tova, who never even peeled a potato, and who is now in charge of four cranky little kids; Nechama, who deliberately walks into a wall, just to do a gigantic mitzvah. Libby Lazewnik is one terrific author, and the world of her stories is one exciting place. It's a place where kids just like you face challenges and win. Or maybe they lose, and learn that losing can sometimes also be okay. The boys and girls in these twenty amazing stories deal with cliques and classrooms and clubhouses, with bar mitzvahs and baseball games and all kinds of things that are important to young people. As you jump into these stories and into these lives, you'll find yourself laughing a lot. Sometimes secretly wiping away a tear. And always, always, enjoying these can't-put-down stories by one of today's most popular writers.
