Winner of the children's book contest sponsored by Keshet, an advocacy group for GLBT Jews, The Purim Superhero by Elisabeth Kushner is both a great read and introduction to the world for children growing up in a multicultural society. It is also a gem for understanding the complex emotions of children that we tend to oversimplify and dismiss. Excellent for children AND adults!
