Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-This book is not so much the story of a young boy adapting to a new culture as it is a description of Orthodox Judaism. Zev Tsukerman, 11, and his family left Odessa in the Ukraine in large part because they were not allowed to practice their religion freely. In clear and interesting prose, Brown shows Zev's daily routine in his new home in San Francisco-learning about his faith at a Jewish day school, after-school activities, and home life-with an emphasis on the religious rituals. The finely written text is accompanied by well-composed, full-color photographs in a variety of attractive layouts.-Diane S. Marton, Arlington County Library, VA
Stephanie Zvirin
ger for reading aloud. Together, Brown and Kobre present a charming composite of 12-year-old Zev Tsukerman, Russian emigre, Orthodox Jew, contemporary San Francisco youngster. Colorful photographs show Zev at home, in his Jewish day school, celebrating Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, and playing with his friends. The layout is attractive, with ample white space and clear type. Some of the photos, however, look too posed, and a few seem rather yellowish in tone and slightly blurred, as if taken from a family album. Yet the pictures certainly capture Zev as an appealing, likable child and make him, despite the unfamiliar aspects of his orthodoxy, seem remarkably like the happy "kid next door." The unpretentious text, written as though Zev were speaking, explains how Judaism, denied to Zev in his native country, now encircles and enriches his life.
