I learned more about Jewish history from this book.

This book was the best Jewish book ever. Its about a boy living in Jerusalem at the time of the Six Day War. None of us truly realize the things this young boy and really anyone living at this time went through. It really shows you that anyone can be a hero. Read this book before its completely sold out!

The 6-day Hero Is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Submitted 8/10/2017 by Peppermint72

in this book, the main character is way too assimilated & ungrateful. Israel could've lost & been destroyed. & Motti says "I don't care about accounting before G-D. As far I'm concerned G-D has accounting before me," what nerve! He didn't have be spared from the shelling! If I could rate this lower I would

Heroes Come in All Shapes and Sizes

This book made me think more about the importance of family.

Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. In this book, a boy named Motti is a hero even though you may think he isn't, in the Six Day War. Family members die of mostly every family and most likely, even though it doesn't say so in the book, there are probably a lot of orphans left. This book is really sad (sort of) but I still recommend the book.

Incredible and interesting book!

This book showed me how much Israelis were hated by there neighboring countries hated them. For only being 6 days a lot of people died. God's hand was present protecting Israel from being destroyed.

This Is A Must-Read!!!!!!
Submitted 7/5/2017 by CorgiGirl

This book taught me about the importance of family. I learned that even if you live in the shadow of an older, or even younger, sibling, you will always love them, so if you're in a situation like Motti is in, enjoy every little moment with them. No matter what, they will always be your sibling.

Super Interesting

I learned more about Jewish history from this book.

The Six Day War by Tammar Stein is a fascinating novel and a fantastic book about the Six Day War. The story starts right before Egypt attacks and showcases life before and during the six days of fighting. Although the main character thinks he is not a hero at first after during each day he learns what it means to be a hero from a kind old German lady who had to start over after World War II to a Ethiopian priest who teaches the main character about the value of loving God. This book blends action with actual facts about what happens and manages to make a fantastic novel that teaches you history and also teaches you the value of having Courage.

This book was fantastic, and I loved it
Submitted 7/5/2017 by CurlyGirlie

I was glued to the book from the second I got it, and through tears and laughs, finished it in under 12 hours. I felt like I was the characters in the book, like, I took a trip to Gideon's battle, or Mama's famous home cooked dinner. I learned so much from this book, and would definitely love reading more from this amazing author with very talented writing skills.

This book made me realize, that your time on Earth is precious. Live your life to the fullest, and never go to bed without a smile. Even in times of war, the people of Israel were singing and dancing and just smiling.

I really loved this book, and I will tell anyone who asks, this was a great book and YOU (yes, you, who else would I be talking to????) should read this fantastically written and thought out book, to bring you back to Israel, during the time of the Six Day War.

I never heard of this war before reading this book. The Jewish people stood strong while being surrounded by people who wanted them gone. It amazes me how God protects the Jewish people like he protected the Israelites. I appreciate my family and the military even more. Very good book!

Submitted 7/4/2017 by lemonsqueak

This book made me think about Jewish history because there was a big war that Israel participated in 1967. I thought that it was interesting that the people had to go into bomb shelters under buildings when the war started and that the kids ran home from the bomb shelter in their school. This is a great book but a little bit sad. i don't want to tell you why because that will reveal too much. Read it to find out more about the Six-Day War.

a fun way to read about the six day war

This book taught me more about Israel.

This was a good, informative, interesting book that showed the Six-Day War from the perspective of a character that experienced the war as it happened, as well as reminding us that many people died in he war. I think that the author did a good job portraying a young Israeli child eager to be a hero, and fit in other characters that form unlikely bonds. I think that it is also good that the author didn't quite mince the main character's sibling's death, thus showing us that not everything was all fun and games.

Tammar Stein 

Author of The Six-Day Hero

“I am addicted to books!”

Tammar Stein has one dog, speaks two languages, and has lived on three continents, in four countries, and five states. When she was nine she wanted to be the first woman astronaut on Mars, and then she wanted to read books for a living, but finally she decided that being an author was the best career. Her favorite kind of book is one that stays with you for a long time after you finish reading it. The Six-Day Hero definitely does!
