Book Review - People Speak 4 #review #ebook #promotion #amazonreview

People Speak - 4

Book Description:

People Speak is a collection of true stories written by real people about their own lives, collected by popular writer and editor Rabbi Chaim Walder, bestselling author of the series Kids Speak.

Rabbi Walder's storytelling prowess continues to take us on a journey into people's live, painting for us a vivid picture of their hardship as well as their triumphs. These real life stories have been hand selected from the multitude of letters that fill Rabbi Walder's post-office box, each for the meaningful message it conveys and the life lessons to be learned from it.

The People Speak series has been translated into six languages and has captured the hearts of hundreds of thousands of people the world over for its unique ability to retell people's life stories in an incredibly touching manner. This is the 4th book in the series.

There are 26 heartwarming stories in this book... even though the people telling the stories often use Hebrew, Yiddish, and other languages when telling their stories..  the terms that I did not know already were easy to understand with help from the glossary at the end.  It was somewhat disruptive in my reading flow to have to keep looking in the end for definitions of words.  While this doesn't take away from the stories - it's hard for a reader to full dive in and get lost when reading.  For me, I like to soak in a book and not have to feel like I'm back in college or high school and needing to read the notes! ;)

Chaim Walder is an author of literature for children, adolescents, and adults.
He is also an educational counselor and manager of the Center for the Child and Family operated by the Bnei Brak municipality.
