9780064432436: Jerusalem, Shining Still

Evokes the spirit of an ancient city, recalling David, Nebuchadnezzer, Herod, Hadrian, Constantine, Saladin, Sulieman, and the many groups who came to conquer; and observes that despite 3000 years of being battered, burned, and rebuilt, Jerusaleum shines peacefully in the moonlight.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1 Up Through lilting poetic prose and glowing woodcuts, Kuskin and Frampton present a hommage to the holy city of Jerusalem, home of the three major religions. Four thousand years of the city's history are described, beginning with King David's conquest over Goliath, continuing through the Six Day War. In spite of all the battles, burnings, and rebuildings, the city stands majestically ``shining still.'' It is to Kuskin's credit that she describes the city's 4000-year history in such a brief form, while still conveying a personal sense of the place. She sometimes interweaves verses with the rhythmic prose. Frampton's woodcuts, in a predominantly golden color accented with other bright hues, are elegantly composed and radiant. This book, beautifully illustrated and well told, conveys strong feelings for the city of Jerusalem. Micki S. Nevett, Temple Beth Emeth Library, Albany, N.Y.

From Publishers Weekly:

Kuskin chronicles Jerusalem's countless destructions and rebuildings over thousands of years in a strikingly illustrated book, lauded by PW as an "exquisite hymn to one of the world's great cities." All ages.
