Synopsis: Sara’s parents will do anything to live and raise their children as Jews. In Spain during the 1490’s, that means leaving wealth, valuables and a comfortable life behind to set sail for the Ottoman Empire. Sara is reluctant to leave her familiar childhood home until she understands what her priorities really are. Will Sara be able to save her friend from the clutches of the Inquisition? Will she rescue a precious heirloom challah plate from the heartless Spanish soldiers? And will she ever be up to the challenge of baking a perfect challah all by herself? More Precious than Gold is geared to children ages 7-10 who still need large, clear letters and an occasional illustration as they try out their skills. Most importantly, More Precious than Gold is packed with Jewish historical content and detail about the expulsion from Spain in 1492 to make a child's reading experience truly worthwhile. It's a story of adventure, sacrifice, and important Torah values of a family that chooses to leave behind all their wealth and the comfort of Spain in order to live in a country that will allow them to be fully, openly Jewish. More Precious than Gold is a carefully researched and excitingly written page-turner especially for second through fourth graders eager to read quality material on their own.
