Illustrated by Elizabeth Rosen

 I've just finished writing a book for young people about Jewish American heroes. I can't imagine a better time for such a book. Heroes are in short supply and Jews can use all that they can claim. Children need help in learning the difference between heroism and fame, and between celebrity and greatness.-Malka Drucker
