    2. One of my favorite books of all time.I think that this is the first book I read which featured Jewish characters but wasn't written just for Jews. And it also has a really cool plot.Two Jewish kids town is burned down in Medieval England while they are away, picking strawberries. From there they are thrown into an adventure with Robin Hood.I don't want to give specific examples because I feel like you should read this in the book itself, but besides being the first Jewish book not written for on [...]

    3. What is it like when you are a jew in the 1193? 12 year old Benedict, and 10year old Elvira got orphaned in a massacre at Lymford. They set out on a journeyto Oxford, hoping for a new life. Their journey goes through Sherwood Forest,where they meet Robin Hood, Friar Tuck, Will Scarlet and, the rest.

    4. I have said it before and I will say it again – the biggest disservice American teachers do to their students is to teach history in a vacuum. Students are rarely given any context before the WWII unit rolls around. (See: Six Million Paper Clips).

In 1193, thirteen-year-old Benedict and his ten-year-old sister Elvira live comfortable and sheltered lives in the town of Lymford with their physician father, mother, and six-year-old brother Richard. But all that is about to change. The two older children are given a day off from their studies to go into the fields outside of Lymford to pick strawberries. On the way out of town, they learn that the Governor of [...]

    6. Historical fiction which gives insight into the Jewish culture during the time of Robin Hood. An enjoyable read!

    7. I first read this when I was about 10 and rereading it as an adult was just as enjoyable. The story is sweet without being saccharine, and Melnikoff showcases a part of Jewish history that is perhaps less written about than others, especially in children's fiction.
