Praise

Starred Review, Publishers Weekly:
“Sensitively written and beautifully illustrated.”

Review, Kirkus Reviews:
“The handsome design features decoratively framed text boxes opposite Gustavson’ s expressive, realistic oil paintings. Should spark discussion around the seder table and in classrooms of history.”

Review, Book Review Digest:
“The book offers any number of promising uses: it’s a fascinating Civil War story with a difference, it’s an American counterpart to the World War I Christmas in the trenches story, and it’s a rich tale of people finding connections through faith in a difficult time. Weber provides a glossary before the story and concludes with a compact, personal explanation of the festival of Passover, so even those unfamiliar with the holiday will have no difficulty in understanding its import in the story.”

Review, Social Edication, June 1, 2010:
“…an engaging discussion about freedom as Jewish traditions are celebrated.”
