Jewish Book World

“The simple rhyming text moves fluidly from one page to the next and the slightly stylized illustrations, in a soothing color palette, are serene… The concept of yearly growth is conveyed nicely.”

Kansas City Jewish Chronicle

“This is a perfect book to introduce the holiday to toddlers.”
