Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1Another successful collaboration between the author and illustrator of Sammy Spider's First Hanukkah (1993) and Sammy Spider's First Passover (1995, both Kar-Ben). In this story about the Jewish New Year, Rouss repeatedly uses concepts of sizelarge, middle-sized, and smallin the narrative. Mother Spider explains the holiday customs and symbols to curious young Sammy, including Rosh Hashanah greeting cards, challah bread, apples and honey for a sweet year, and special synagogue services. Sammy is endearing, but mischief-prone. Despite Mother Spider's insistence that he must remain a respectful observer to the festivities, Sammy manages to celebrate Rosh Hashanah in his own way. This gentle tale should appeal to youngsters of all backgrounds. The colorful collage illustrations are both instructive and cheerful.Libby K. White, Schenectady County Public Library, NY
