Rachel the Clever and Other Jewish Folktales. The 46 stories in this collection are as varied as their origins-Poland, Morocco, Yemen, and Spain, to name a few-yet all possess a unifying element: a uniquely Jewish flavor, an emphasis on doing the right thing, on surviving by cleverness and kindness-and the need for keeping a good sense of humor.

Sherman's tales of Chelm are so slight as to be mere anecdotes compared to Singer's richly layered versions, while her magical stories seem flat beside Howard Schwartz's (in The Diamond Tree, 1991).

And maybe it's finally time to enjoy "The Grapes of Wrath" and other classics, instead of just the CliffsNotes version.

Although the 46 tales in this collection are as varied as their origins, nearly all of these stories have been passed on by immigrants to America. As a result, this collection is a world tour between two covers, but not at the expense of the unifying element common to these stories: their uniquely Jewish flavor of “…doing the right thing, on surviving by cleverness and kindness and on the need for keeping a good sense of humor."

This along with Solomon and the Ant, is a great example of Jewish Wisdom Tales. I bought this to read to my daughter but you can read this to anyone who is interested in reading a good story with a moral.

Wonderful, very brief stories for young children. The reader can build an understandable moral from each of them. They are humorous, not frightening, and nicely illustrated in romantic pictures. After taking it from the library to read to my grandchildren, I ordered three copies so each could have one in their own homes and there would still be one when they visited with me. The stories can be read over and over because they have so much to say, even tho' they are short.
