Jewish Book World

“Fans of flip picture books, k’vel! Here is a well thought out, useful, warm, happy picture book with a sound life-cycle topic. Ex­cellent photographs and sweetly chronological events capture the thrilling experience of welcoming a new baby, one way for girls, flip! the other way for boys, each version meeting in the middle with the same concluding photograph.” — Jewish Book World

AJL Newsletter

“The kid-friendly story is supported by luminous photographs by Jeff Finkelstein. Each photo is beautifully composed and creates a synthesis with the text. The comparison of hand and foot size with the new baby is particularly poignant.” — AJL Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

“Korngold’s simple approach to this vital topic works well and is nicely coupled with clear, color photography of the same family documenting the activity of these two very special days . . . A joyful and eminently useful book.” — Kirkus Reviews
