Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sara Rofofsky Marcus
In this colorful narrative, the reader follows whimsical yet barely believable events that cause a blue satin kippah, or skullcap, given at Josh's Bar Mitzvah as it travels from head to head, country to country, throughout a year. Each place and time the kippah changes heads occurs in another state or country at another Jewish holiday or event. While this work at first glance might be appropriate for Orthodox Jews based on the extensive use of Hebrew and Yiddish words, the images are more appropriate for less observant Jews, such as images of mixed dancing and a woman wearing the kippah. The work might be used for geography, travel, or an overview of the holidays that occur in the Jewish year. However, so little information is provided about any of these locations or holidays that other works might be more useful. Reviewer: Sara Rofofsky Marcus
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—As is often customary, Joshua Jacobs provides his Bar Mitzvah guests with personalized kippot (head coverings) to wear during the prayer service and celebration. His uncle takes his kippah home with him to Los Angeles and wears it on Rosh Hashanah. During the outdoor Tashlich ceremony, a big gust of wind blows the skullcap away and it lands on the head of Benjamin Brody, who takes it home to Australia. As the yarmulke changes heads, it travels to Israel, Paris, Argentina, and Miami, celebrating the Jewish holidays of Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Hanukkah, and Purim, until it coincidentally makes its way back to New York for Passover, where Josh discovers it in a box in the synagogue on Shavuot. While it's fun to read the different inscriptions on the kippot and imagine the stories behind them, Elissa fails to provide readers with anything more than a basic geography lesson and a brief journey through the Jewish calendar. Cheerful watercolor illustrations add energy and enthusiasm, a helpful glossary is appended, the depiction of women wearing kippot is inclusive, and there is a nice message about the oneness of the world Jewish community. However, there isn't much of a story here that will attract readers, especially those outside the Jewish community.—Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL
