“A welcome addition. . .”

The Horn Book Guide

“Spider Sammy stows away in Josh’s backpack, accompanying the boy to school. The students learn a lesson about the Jewish value of being kind to animals – put to the test once Sammy’s spotted. The text is didactic but accessible; though it obviously depicts observant Jewish life, the story reaches beyond one particular audience. Brightly colored cut-paper illustrations are lively.”
