Jewish Book Council
“Humorous illustrations use black lines and grayscale as a backdrop for Ezra’s brightly colored creations. This is a light-hearted and attractive book that can be used to supplement holiday collections in libraries and schools and can teach about Israel at home.” — Jewish Book Council
“Children will enjoy Ezra’s fearless approach to art, and art teachers may find it can serve as an inspirational classroom tool” — AJL Reviews
“Echeverri’s bright splashes of color in a gray landscape emphasize the creativity that Ezra, at least, brings to the task . . . first-time author Rose hints at the value of doing the necessary work rather than waiting for inspiration to strike.” — Publisher’s Weekly
