Adventure Girl: Dabi Digs in Israel

We rated this book:


Dabi’s a natural-born explorer of the Earth, just like her Doda Gili was as a child. Her Ima and Abba take her to Israel to visit her grandparents, and she has the opportunity to spend time with her Aunt Gili. She calls her an “adventure girl” and takes her to a place Dabi will likely hold in her heart forever. At the Beit Guvrin National Park, Dabi participates in an archeological excavation. She unearths an ancient artifact: a ring that’s 3,500 years old. To her and her parents’ delight, she’s honored with a certificate for her discovery.

This is a unique book about a young, adventurous girl who favors plunging into the world of creepy crawlers and sculpting homemade mud pies. She’s by no means a girlie girl, and with her Doda Gili she can be her authentic self. Children will celebrate the trip they take together during which Dabi’s efforts lead her to a successful find. They’ll be heartened by the encouragement her aunt gives her and struck by the life-like, multi-dimensional illustrations that grace the pages. The target age range for this original text is youth aged five to nine.
