Cover: Rosh Hashanah Is Coming!

“Two young children celebrate the Jewish New Year by making a round challah, blowing the shofar, dipping apples in honey, delighting in a juicy pomegranate, putting on new clothes, and enjoying a festive holiday meal with family. As with its predecessors, Shabbat Is Coming! (2014), Hanukkah Is Coming! (2015) and Passover Is Coming! (2016), the detailed computer‐generated, cartoon
illustrations are bright and cheery and rhyming couplets are included on each page followed by
the refrain, ‘Rosh Hashanah is coming.’ The final spread depicts the children looking out their
window at the starry night sky and concludes: ‘Together we cheer: Shana Tova! Happy New Year!
Hurray! Rosh Hashanah is here!’ While there is no mention of the family attending synagogue, this
is a nice, fresh addition for holiday board book collections and preschool classrooms.”—AJL
