In July of 2014, the world watched with great sadness as violence erupted once again between Israelis and Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. Palestinian writer (and former Sesame Street producer) Naila Farouky wrote a powerful poem that was a cry from the heart for maintaining humanity, even in the face of pain, rage, and sorrow. The poem became a picture book, illustrated by Israeli artist Ora Eitan. See what they did there?
Another relevant, powerful publishing choice by Liz Nealon, and another StarWalk project I was honored to produce, design and shepherd. Special thanks from me to Lee Evron-Vaknin who showed sublime insight and generosity in providing the Hebrew translation for this book.
