Sara-Ester is no stranger to children. With eleven kids of her own and dozens of grandchildren, kids have always been a central part of her life. From her early teaching years in Canada to her more recent private English lessons in Israel, Sara-Ester has inspired the next generation for decades.
When she, her husband, and their seven youngest children moved to Israel 17 years ago, she wasn’t sure what she was in for. What she found was a passion for a country that was misunderstood and often feared for reasons she discovered were simply myths in the sand.
There is so much negative press out there about Israel; I wanted to turn that around.
After she retired recently, Sara decided she was ready to take on that challenge.
I’ve designed a series of books that explores ancient and important historical/archaeological sites in Israel. Each book will be site specificSo what I am doing now: writing and publishing books. I set up my own publishing company, Kids Discover Israel (KDI). My first book,At Masada, has been published. I’m working on the second volume: In Ir David – In the City of David.I’m excited about the possibility of teaching children about historical truths about Israel, about encouraging them to care about and yes, even fall in love with Israel.All the research that goes into the writing of a book is time consuming, but thrilling. I’m learning so much too!I love writing. And I love children. I’m now combining the 2 – it’s a perfect combination!
Logoworks sent me a few samples to choose from, and I instantly liked one in particular. We worked with it together – Logoworks was so easy to work with and made me feel a part of their “team”. I’m really happy with the final product: it’s bright, colorful and creative; I think it will really appeal to kids.
