The Story of the Chosen People (1896) by H. A. Guerber was written to
provide elementary students the story of Israel in an easy to read,
story format. Guerber writes,
Although this is a juvenile history of the Jews, it has not been
written without much research; and, in order to make it a s brief,
comprehensive, and accurate as possible, many authorities beside the
Bible, Josephus, and the Bible dictionaries, have been consulted.
He further writes,
It is hoped that an inkling of the story of the Jews will stimulate the
children's interest, will early imbue them with a taste for history,
and will give them the desire to gain further and more complete
information on the subject when they grow older.
