  • This was an excellent book, depicting the Six Day War--before, during, and after--from the perspective of a 12 year old boy living in West Jerusalem. I think the book depicts a greater independence that Israeli children had (and have) compared to American children in general. It gently explores the emotions of the different characters and the main character learns different ideas about heroism. The book jacket lists it as for ages 8-13, but that seems young to me. I would say ages 11-14. There a [...]



  • Amazing! As you read this book, you become so comfortable with the setting and characters that you don't notice the amazing lessons you are getting on history, culture, bravery, and hope. I've read many children/YA books with characters living in countries other than the usual English speaking ones, and this author does something very few have done. She incorporates Hebrew/Israeli words, customs, routines in such a casual, normal way that they never seem stilted, forced, or even weird. The young [...]


  • The Six-Day Hero by Tammar Stein was a thrilling but emotional story. It is about the six-day war where Israel was fighting for their country and their lives against the Arab Armies, or its surrounding territories. 12 year old Motti wants to be a hero like his older brother and father. In this story, you will see Motti transform into the hero he is while he finds signs of hope and positivity. Sadness, bravery, and joy all mix in this wonderful historical fiction book.I liked this book a lot. I l [...]


  • Motti is twelve and his older brother Gideon is nineteen -- the same age as the new state of Israel. Gideon is serving in the army now, as all Israelis do when they finish high school. The young country is a mix of immigrants, many of who survived the Holocaust, and native born Sabras like Motti and his family. Things are tense in the summer of 1967. Egypt, Jordan, and Syria are assembling their troops along the borders, threatening to wipe the new country off the map. When his father is called [...]




  • I’ve never been to Israel and I didn't know too much about Israeli history. Tammar Stein’s The Six-Day Hero made the country, the people, and this pivotal moment in history real to me. I have a greater understanding of what led to the Six Day War and the struggles of the people living in this region. The Six-Day Hero opened my eyes and my heart. Young readers should immediately take to the main character of Motti and his family. The descriptions are vivid and the tensions of the time period [...]


  • In May, 1967, the small country of Israel went to war with Egypt, Syria, and Jordan for their very existence. The Arab countries vowed that Israeli blood would run through the streets. Israel’s western allies abandoned them to their fate. Only twenty years after the Holocaust, a country of Jewish people were again faced with extermination but, this time, they had a military force and a plan. Although their soldiers were outnumbered five to one, lightning strikes against the Arab artillery and [...]
