A Journey To A Promised Land Which Flows With Milk and Honey
“This book gives examples of shalom bayit, peaceful homes for both animals and humans. It will show children differences in what peaceful homes are for both groups. It can help them to understand that what may be peaceful and harmonious to one animal might not be considered peaceful and harmonious to another.” — Jill Harris
“A lovely book with a message of the peace of nature around us includes the Jewish concept of shalom bayit in a successful way. The illustrations will be super appealing to young children and the possibilities for kids to point out various animals and learn about their homes is welcome. The words flow very smoothly and match the text well.” — Lisa Silverman, Library Director, Burton Sperber Jewish Community Library, Los Angeles, CA
“The concept that home is peaceful is celebrated in this story with wide appeal.” — BayViews
“A welcome book for any nature-loving toddler.” — Kirkus Reviews
