Description
   Ivrit-be-Ivrit reader for youngsters, with many illustrations by Mordecai Manes Monossowitz (1857-1928). Monossowitz was born in Shaty, Lita and emigrated to New York in 1919. He is the author of over 30 titles many published multiple editions.

The Hibbat Zion Period led to new educational methods inaugurated in the Jewish communities of Eastern Europe in the 1890s (the model heder and Hebrew as a medium of instruction) played a decisive role in the development of Hebrew literature for children. The movement for the revival of the Hebrew language led to the publication of an ever-increasing number of Hebrew readers. Ivrit-be-Ivrit.
