Online book for Jewish kids: The Great March

Scanned by Sacred Text Online, The Great March in an out-of-print book published by the UAHC in 1931:
This is a collection of Post-Biblical Jewish stories, written for 3rd to 4th graders. However, this book is also thoroughly enjoyable for adults, not the least because of the finely-drawn illustrations. The anecdotes include sublime Talmudic humor, tales of resistance to injustice and persecution, and profound spiritual lessons. It also includes many incidents of cooperation between Jews, Christians, and Muslims. Written in a time of looming peril for Jewish people, this book is still meaningful to people of all faiths today.
