Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The creators of Hanukkah Lights, Hanukkah Nights, hit a high note with this picture book about the traditions surrounding the Jewish High Holy Days, or Days of Awe. The house is abuzz with excitement as the relatives gather to celebrate Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and then 10 days later, Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. In this time of prayers, good food and good times, Uncle Jake plays a special role: he will blow the shofar, or ram's horn, during the service at the synagogue. Kimmelman includes a wealth of information about the tastes (challah and apples with honey), sights (the stained glass synagogue windows) and sounds (the shofar, the cantor and the rabbi) of the holiday season in her energetic text, making it highly accessible to very young children. Himmelman's cozy, lighthearted paintings feature an extended family--including a spunky litter of orange tabby cats--enjoying themselves and reaffirming their Jewish faith. Ages 3-6. (Aug.)
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
In this easy to understand story, a family is preparing to celebrate the Days of Awe Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. All of the symbols and the meaning of the holiday a time to reflect on ones actions of the past year and hopes and prayers for a happy next year are clearly explained. Uncle Jake practices blowing the shofar, because he has been selected to blow it at the beginning of the New Year and at the conclusion of the holiday. A good introduction for young children with scenes and character that they will be able to relate to.
