If you are ages 9-11, PJ Our Way offers the gift of exceptional books with Jewish themes to kids ages 9-11 – books that they choose themselves! It allows kids to visit www.PJOurWay.org to choose a book from a selection of four high-quality titles that have been reviewed by a panel of PJ educators, parents and kids. That is 12 free books a year! To make the choice easier, every title offered comes with a synopsis and author bios, ratings and reviews, and video trailers. Kids can also take polls and quizzes, participate in monthly interviews and challenges, and comment on blog posts.
