"Striking art and a conversational text distinguish this from the many children's books on Jewish holidays. Kimmelman introduces 12 days of importance, beginning with Rosh Hashanah and concluding with Shabbat. She presents them in a lively, dramatic way. . . . A book that is as useful as it is eye-catching and beautifully designed." --Starred review, Booklist
