    1. This was a funny book, with a little girl who wants to be all kinds of animals.It also shows a bit about Jewish culture.


    2. Estie the Mensch by Jane Kohuth , does not like people She thinks that they are smelly and pushy She prefers animals and chooses to live in an imaginary world where she pretends to be an array of animals Her father encourages her Be a mensch , which Estie learns from her grandmother means to be a person Estie s grandmother tries to encourage her to see the good and valuable characteristics of people It isn t until Estie wants to connect with a boy named Petie that she realizes the true value in [...]


    3. Kohuth J 2011 Estie the mensch New York Random House The main characters name is Estie At the beginning of the story we learn that she does not like to interact with other people She likes to act like animals Her parents and her grandmother constantly remind her to Zai a mensch That meant to be a well behaved person Every day her parents and grandmother remind her of that Then one day her grandmother takes her to the zoo with grandma s friend and her grandson She does not really know what to say [...]


    4. Estie the Mensch is a great book that is easily relatable to all audiences Jane Kohuth, an insider to the Jewish culture, wrote this about the unique ways of each child It also includes language that is associated with Hebrew and the Jewish culture, such as mensch, which means well behaved person This book is in the fiction genre I can imagine almost every child has considered what it would be like being different things or animals, and this book discusses what it would be like to be all those a [...]


    5. This book resonated with me due to having a child who at the age of four wanted to grow up to be a lion Estie wants to be a turtle, a dog, an octopus anything other than a mensch, well behaved good person She s desperately shy and finds so much to like about the animal world That is until she meets a young boy named Petie who isn t shy in the least and who finds Estie s animal antics very funny, all of which gives her the confidence to relate on a human level.


    6. I got an autographed copy of this book from giveaways I immediately opened it and read it with my three daughters, aged 8 years and 3 years They loved the illustrations and could all realate to Estie, who could sometimes act silly and be a pest, but deep down was truely a mensch good girl This was clearly illustrated at the end when she shared her icecream with her new friend.


    7. A gem whose spotlight faded too soon If you find a copy of this recently out of print book grab it The charming illustrations perfectly capture the sassy girl who behaves like all the animals at the zoo, until a friend is in trouble and that s when she shows her true self as a good friend.


    8. Estie is charming I love her independent mensch streak each animal she transforms into is imaginative and delightful The story leads to an important climax about what it means to be a mensch, or a good person, but Kohuth s brilliant text presents the lesson in a natural way I love this book
