Israel’s biggest book, standing at two meters tall has been presented to the Ma'aleh Adumim community at a special event marking the close of this year’s seventh annual A.H.A.V.A English Read-a-thon.
The event held at the Eshkol Hapayis (lottery granted community building) in Ma'aleh Adumim was attended by hundreds of schoolchildren who participated in the five week Read-a-thon, along with their family members.
A.H.A.V.A opened this year’s Read-a-thon on January 12 with the unveiling of a two meter tall front cover of a book, entitled ‘The Giant’s Book’ with artwork donated by children’s illustrator Netanel Epstein. Children participating in the Read-a-thon were invited to help complete the book with each child illustrating a different word.
