How many of us were first introduced to the Torah through children's Bible stories? Do we help our children understand the Torah by reading these simplified versions, or do we undermine their ability to draw their own conclusions? We will examine several children's versions of the story of Esau and Yaakov and compare them to the original text. We will identify the ways in which the authors interpret this story and discuss how their choices influence children's understanding of the Torah.
