a favorite collection of stories in five volumes.
Five volume Jewish story collection for children in middle grades by Nissen Mindel (Merkos/Kehos pub.)
The Storyteller Vol.1(sample not available presently)
The Storyteller series is interesting for all ages, adults as well as children. The author writes in a style that is easy to read, yet it is not strictly a 'children's' style but an ageless style that all can enjoy.
The stories were gathered mainly from old Yiddish and Hebrew books, collections of stories from the previous centuries. Most of these stories have a true core.
There are a number of stories of WWII and stories from behind the iron curtain. Each of these were told to the author by those who lived through them. These stories are all true.
The Storyteller (vol.2)
featured sample story relates the origin of the sacred Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur prayer of Unesaneh Tokef.

About us-We are a family living in New York who thought it would be nice to have a Jewish book site with sample chapters online so that people who don't have easy access to a variety of favorite Jewish books might be able to browse online. We also thought that our site might be a service to librarians and Jewish libraries.
Our site is Jewish children's books, but we also feature Jewish teen books and Jewish inspirational books.
We are small, but we have included some of the best and others that are favorites. We hope that you enjoy it here.
We hope you will come often to visit, in this Jewish children's reading room.
