“Superbly illustrated with full-color, lush borders around the descriptive pages, and illustrations of the story characters on the folktale pages, the books call out to be picked up and perused. Text and illustration are a perfect complement.” —Chicago Jewish Star

“Together the books [All About Rosh Hashanah, All About Yom Kippur] provide a wonderful basic library for youngsters 5 to 10 years of age. Every Jewish home library with children should have these books.” —Jewish World News
