Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Chernak
This charmingly retold legend is a staple in the "values" repertoire of Jewish storytellers and deserves wide dissemination. Each brother, safe and prosperous on his own side of their mountain inheritance, voices his concern for his sibling's welfare by stealthily transferring some of his harvest to the other's storehouse. Each continuously wonders why, then, his sheaves do not diminish. The mystery is solved by wise King Solomon, who rewards this display of love by building his temple and the Eternal City of Jerusalem atop that very mountain. Waldman's charming paintings are just right, even with their anachronistic head coverings, which somehow made me smile instead of rejecting them: they make their point.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2In this well-known Hebrew parable, King Solomon observes the kindness of two brothers, each of whom believes the other has a greater need. In the middle of the night, the older brother, who is not married, carries sheaths of wheat to the younger man, who has a family. That same night, the younger brother carries sheaths to his older brother. Each wonders the next day why he still has the same number of sheaths. Finally, on the third night the two men bump into one another and realize what has happened. They embrace and laugh in each others arms and King Solomon, who has been watching, announces that he will build his glorious temple on that spot. In this lovely story, the lessons of brotherly love and sharing are imparted simply, directly, and with humor. Unfortunately, the characters are all drawn in the same nondescript style with rounded faces and bodies, dots and lines for eyes and mouths, and beards that look like pasted-on curlicues. The circular motif is carried through in the stylized trees. While the soft blues, greens, and browns work nicely, the cartoonlike depiction of the humans seems inappropriate for the story. Brothers, retold by Florence B. Freedman and illustrated by Robert Andrew Parker (HarperCollins, 1985; o.p.), is a more serious version of this legend.Susan Pine, New York Public Library
