I was so excited yesterday when I came across a book store selling all its books for 15 shekels (about $3.50 US). I decided to get a couple to start practicing my Hebrew reading, and at this stage the best way to do that is with children’s books. There were so many good ones, but I had to choose only 2 (I am on a budget!)
When I found a Curious George book with a collection of stories inside, I knew that would have to be one of them. Then I found an African story about a group of children who go out into the bush to count animals….that was choice number 2.
Last night I (slowly) read through the African Safari book, with help from Dudu. It was a bit painful at times, sometimes having to sound out words letter by letter like a child, but I managed to read it and understand it all! This is a huge accomplishment for me, considering just a few months ago I didn’t even know any Hebrew letters. I am so proud of my new books, that I must also share them with you as well. Take a look….
