Synopsis: Retells the wondrous deeds of Honi the Circle Maker who wandered over the land of ancient Israel planting carob seeds.
From School Library Journal:
K-Gr 2--Honi, a character from Talmudic legend, is known for three things: the planting of carob trees across ancient Israel, his ability to communicate with God from within an iconographic circle, and for his selflessness--he plants not for himself, but for the generations to come. In its previous incarnation, Honi and His Magic Circle (Jewish Publication Society, 1979; o.p.), three separate episodes in the wanderer's life were related and resulted in a disjointed tale. This version has a cohesive story line and animated folk-style illustrations. Honi wanders the land planting his seeds, comes to a village where a man remembers his rain miracle from years before and leads the old man to take a rest. When Honi awakens from what he thought was his nap, he learns that 70 years have passed; confused and upset at first, he realizes that he has been allowed to see his trees bear fruit. This is a lovely book not only for the Jewish holiday of Shavuos, but for any library that wants a book on ecology or selflessness. An appealing retelling.
