Review:


A young Goldie Mabowehz always seemed to know just what to do. She made herself president of the American Young Sisters Society. Their mission was to raise enough money to buy books for children who needed them. Goldie tried to earn extra money on her own but it wasn't working. So she decided to have a gala fund raiser at the Packen hall. The Young Society wrote invitations and painted posters. Unfortunately for Goldie, the girl who always knew what to do, needed to write her speech and she had a problem coming up with it. When it was time to step out onto the stage she spoke from her heart. You'll have to read the story to see if the girls were able to raise enough money for books.

Author Barbara Krasner has recreated the life of Golda Meir's first crusade. Krasner likes writing about history, especially Jewish themed. Young readers will be inspired by this tale of adventurous and creative young girls. Brown and gray hues of color ed illustrations will take readers back in time. This fact based story will engage and educate readers about Golda Meir's ambition. Parents and teachers can use this story as a tool to teach history along with Jewish culture and traditions.
