We received this book to give an honest review.
I really do not know much about Israel so this was a refreshing read for me because I feel as though I learned a bit along with K. What is sad is K didn't even know about Israel so this was very informative for him. I really like the idea of going to the Dead Sea and using the salt water to make you feel better, never thought about that before. In all the books the concept is the same we learn a bit about the country, what they call different foods, their parents, their toys and so forth. 
K and I always find it fun to pronounce the different words that are within the book and it is very helpful to have the guide in the back of the book.
