written by Shoham Smit & illustrated by Vali Mintzi
Young Akiva was an excellent and experienced goat-herder. He knew how to take care of newborn goats and he knew where the best grass grew! But there was one thing that Akiva didn’t know: Akiva did not know how to read. Shoham Smit brings to life the journey of an illiterate shepherd who became known as an exemplary teacher and a great sage.
