Sharing Our Homeland

By Publishers Weekly

Marx’s direct narrative and Karp’s mostly candid, action-filled photos focus on two campers: Alya, an Israeli Palestinian girl and Yuval, an Israeli Jewish boy. After introducing their families and providing a capsule history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Marx offers an upbeat, present-tense description of camp life, which involves standard on-site activities as well as field trips to a kibbutz and an Arab village….It’s an informative, uplifting portrait of friendships forged in a peaceful oasis and a commitment to understanding and tolerance.
