I loved this book!

This book taught me more about Israel.

This book was great and I only took four days, an hour a day, to read it. The book showed so many important factors of life that many people, including me, don’t think about every day such as, never giving up, or always being respectful to everyone. I strongly recommend this book for any age at all. I can guarantee you that you will learn something from reading this book. It’s witty, hilarious, and educational.

REALLY GOOD BOOK

Seymour is afraid of just about everything. He can't even ride a bicycle. But when his cousin comes, Seymour is almost forced to become strong like his cousin. I thought this book kept me on edge the whole time and it was very funny!

This book is alright... Seymour is afraid of everything! Swimming, bikes, you name it, he doesn't like it. But when his israeli cousin comes around, he has to learn not to be afraid. He has to learn to be brave. So his cousin and himself go to New York City together, and go jogging together, trying to get Seymour to be brave. :)

It was my favorite type of chapter book- life-like action. The book also taught me ALOT of Hebrew, and also about taking care of an Israeli kid when your a kid.

This was a great book! It was funny to read about someone my age who is afraid of everything. But he has a good friend that always sticks by his side. When his cousin Pesach comes, he tries to help Seymour not be a chicken, but when Pesach gets hurt, will all of his hard work pay off or will Seymour still be chicken? Well, that's for you to find out.

I liked the story and the characters. I really felt that I could understand Seymour's life and fears. There were some funny parts and it was cool learning new Hebrew words like ben-dodi or madreech.
