For five generations, children have asked their parents in Hebrew for one last bedtime story. This series examines the past and present of Israeli children’s literature. In five parts, the series explores how the child learns about the world, and the development of the Israeli identity in which children’s literature plays a crucial role through molding language, place, society, even fears.
Renowned Israeli writers read from their books and those they read as children, delving into the experiences behind them. The series is about childhood itself, and examines how literature molds children’s identities and the Israeli identity as a whole.
