Levin Kipnis (1894-1990) was well known as a prolific author and one of the most important creators of Hebrew children's literature in Erets Yisrael, especially for small children. When he was 50 years old, he heard that one of his Hebrew stories had been translated into Yiddish and published in Kinder-zhurnal (Children's Journal, 1920-1978), a Yiddish children's periodical published in New York. He then decided to write in Yiddish, his first mother tongue. Later he edited three books of short stories in Yiddish, two of which were published in Israel after his death: Under the Fig Tree and Under the Carob Tree. These stories are about Jewish festivals and everyday life mainly in Israel and a few in the Diaspora. Kipnis used writing techniques suited to young children -- personification, picturesque description and dialogue.
