Jewish Book Council
“Grover is as cute and adorable as always, and fills his reports home with wonderful humor. The descriptions of his adventures are always age-appropriate for the designated audience. There is rhythm in his story, and the reader can truly hear Grover speaking the words he is writing. The illustrations are true to life and add to the travelogue. Colorful illustrations of the undersea life near Eilat are particularly outstanding.” — Jewish Book Council
“Enjoy your visit to Israel – you’ll learn a lot and smile from cover to cover.” — AJL Reviews
“The best way to experience this book is to find someone who does a really good Grover impression for a read-aloud. Grover has one of the most distinctive voices in the history of children’s television, and all Sesame Street fans will hear that voice in their heads as soon as they pick up the book.” — Kirkus Reviews
