Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Including the historical significance of the major holidays of the Jewish faith, "Berger's lively, detailed and all-around enjoyable collection is indeed something to celebrate," said PW in a starred review. "Catalanotto's dramatic watercolors illustrate such legendary scenes as a Hanukkah lamp burning bright and Queen Esther saving her people from King Ahasuerus." Ages 5-9. (Oct.)
