About the Author
Sylvia Rouss is an author and educator who has taught preschool in Jewish Community Centers and Synagogues in Los Angeles and Baltimore since 1973. She was awarded the Samuel Glasner Creative Teaching Award in 1989 from the Baltimore Board of Jewish Education. She continues to write for the preschoolers in her classroom and finds they are her best critics.

Raised in Southern California, Sylvia received her Bachelors Degree from California State University, Fresno. Her first book, "Fun With Jewish Holiday Rhymes", was published by UAHC Press in 1992. Three rhymes from this book were also included in the book "Hanukkah, Oh, Hanukkah" published by Bantam Press. In 1993, her second book, "Sammy Spider's First Hanukkah", was published by KAR-BAN COPIES INC. Because of the book's popularity, Sylvia was asked to write other Sammy Spider holiday books. There are currently six books in the series, including "Sammy Spider's First Rosh Hashanah", "Sammy Spider's First Shabbat", "Sammy Spider's First Tu B'Shevat", "Sammy Spider's First Purim" and "Sammy Spider's First Passover". Sylvia has written a seventh book for the series, "Sammy Spider's First Trip to Israel", which KAR-BEN hopes to publish next year. "The Littlest Frog" is her first book for Pitspopany Press.

Sylvia has done book readings and parent/teacher workshops throughout the country. Currently, she is scheduled to read "The Littlest Frog" at two Los Angeles museums, The Zimmer Children's Discovery Museum and the Skirball Cultural Center this spring.

Sylvia has been happily married for 27 years and is very proud of her 3 adult children - a teacher, a magazine editor, and a college student in Israel.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This is a rhyming, rollicking lark that turns the ten plagues of Egypt on their heads. A list of "Unusual Words" before the story begins would have been a great help, along with a pronunciation guide. In this book, Egypt only has to deal with one plague—frogs. Unfortunately, Pharaoh is very nervous around his unwelcome visitors. He is scared silly of them. But one frog, the littlest one, is scared of him, so he hides under Pharaoh's bed. The frogs are "here, there, and everywhere," and while Pharaoh's magicians can make frogs appear as well as Moses can, they can't make them disappear. Moses, who presumably could if he wanted to, doesn't want to, so he won't. So what's a king to do? He begins to sweep the frogs from his palace. He sweeps them from the throne room, from his bathroom, rugs, jars, baskets and bowls. Finally, he sweeps the last frog from the palace. But that littlest frog is staying right where he is safe. And when Pharaoh is tired and crawls into his bed, everything is quiet, and the littlest frog isn't scared anymore. He hops onto Pharaoh and gives a great "CROAK." Pharaoh panics. "Perhaps Moses is right," Pharaoh thinks. "Perhaps the Jews should be free." Now it is Pharaoh who hides under his bed. The story is a bit strained, but the pictures are charming cartoons, and on the whole, the book is fun 2001, Pitspopany, $14.95. Ages 4 to 8. Reviewer: Judy Silverman

    Finally a Captivating Passover book for Children

    This is by the same author as the Sammy Spider books which are wonderful as well, but Littlest Frog is an Oscar winner among Jewish books for preschoolers to 7 year olds. The illustrations are exquisitely colorful. The text holds the child's attention and elicits imaginative predicting. Every child should experience this needle in a haystack of scary, boring, preachy, tedious Jewish holiday books.
