Laurie McGaw has illustrated many books for children, including African Princess, The Illustrated Father Goose, Journey to Ellis Island, Polar the Titanic Bear, Something to Remember Me By, and To Be a Princess. She lives near Toronto, Ontario. I have read both of Margie Blumberg's books (the other being Shakespeare for Kids) and she is distinguishing herself as a sensitive and thoroughly creative writer of books for children. Although this book has a strong Jewish focus, its theme - of a child learning about his family's past - is universal and should appeal to children of any background. Moreover, the illustrations by Laurie McGaw are elegant and often touching.

Mark thinks that his new home is perfect in every way - except one: Leaning against the wall in the hallway outside his bedroom is a picture of a man with a long

A shofar story for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, Avram's Gift by Margie Blumberg is an endearing tale about discovering one's roots and making dreams come true. The text and the chapter-book format is geared for ages 7-11 and celebrates the traditions and the beauty of the High Holidays.

With his glasses now up on his forehead, he was face-to-face with a man he hadn’t seen in 88 years-his own beloved grandfather Avram, whom he’d left at the train station in Russia so many years ago. That photograph, which I had always found a bit mysterious, was making my uncle Morris beam. For an instant, I could swear that Avram smiled back. And in that moment, a story was born.

The author's story behind the story: It all started with a smile.

Eight-year-old Mark has two wishes: To become a shofar-blower—just like his High Holiday hero—and to make that photograph of his great-great-grandfather Avram disappear from the hallway in his new home. When the family gathers for Rosh Hashanah, though, Mark discovers that his own desire to blow the shofar is actually linked to a hope that the unsmiling man in the photograph once had. Avram’s Gift is a charming portrait of a family and how their lives—past and present—mingle to make wishes come true.

This 2003 notable book is a beautiful story about a young Jewish boy named Mark and an old picture of a stern looking man named Avram, Mark's great great grandfather.

Mark doesn't like the picture one bit. In fact, it makes him a little nervous. But when his family comes to visit for Rosh Hashanah, he learns just who that old man was.

This is a touching story about a young man learning about his family and his culture. The artwork through the book is beautiful, and truly works to tie the story together. It is a fantastic book for young children, and could easily be used to help teach children about Jewish history, Culture and, more specifically, Rosh Hashanah.
