Reviews

Booklist

“Assirelli’s acrylic folk-style illustrations feature soft, rounded shapes that signal coziness and the security Talia feels as she works through her many misconceptions.” — Booklist Online

“It’s a fine introduction to an important Jewish holiday, as well as a reminder that intangible things like forgiveness can be as delicious as the best kugel.” — Publisher’s Weekly
