"Gellman's (Jeremy's Dreidel) gentle, serious prose conveys profound respect for Netta's unwavering stewardship as well as her changing emotional states. Ugliano (Benjamin and the Silver Goblet) is very much in sync, with quietly reassuring scenes of modern Jewish family life and characters whose thoughtful, open faces exude warmth and constancy." -- Publisher's Weekly
"A pale springlike palette of greens, yellows and blues in the soft-edged drawings reinforces the symbolism of new growth... A welcome addition to the Judaica and ecology shelves." --Kirkus Reviews
