Product Details

Praise

This warm, humorous tale is ably supported by lively mixed-media, digitally finished illustrations that affirm the story’s guiding principles of collaboration and cozy hominess. . . . Jewish audiences will appreciate familiar details in text and art, but the important message about the spirit of togetherness is universal. A delightful testament to the power of community.
—Kirkus Reviews

Molk’s (There Might Be Lobsters) mixed-media art portrays an exuberantly participatory community of people with varying body types and skin tones, and kids who evince as much a sense of ownership as the grown-ups. Final scenes set in the glow of the Shabbat candles have a quiet, profound beauty: deep faith, immense joy, and unshakable belonging radiate from the pages.
—Publishers Weekly

This lighthearted tale with dazzling, diverse illustrations winks to its audience (“I’ll be quiet as a deli on Yom Kippur”) as it delivers a quiet message about the value of working together to make our shared spaces bright.
—Foreword Reviews
