Product Details


The author employs simple, accessible language that roots the story in time and place, with believable, sympathetic characters. Hawkes’ detailed acrylic depictions of Shoshi’s and the brown-skinned humans’ facial and body expressions are humorous and thoroughly delightful. . . . A lovely evocation of Shabbat traditions.
—Kirkus Reviews

The pleasures and importance of taking a break are sagely relayed in this picture book, set “long ago on a farm near Jerusalem.”. . . This warmly delivered message of making time for rest, reflection, and relationships is pertinent and heartening for all.

Based on Torah commentary, this pensive picture book is a welcome reminder of the importance of pausing to practice gratitude.
—Publishers Weekly

Based on a traditional Jewish tale, this story celebrates the value of taking a break, connecting with nature, and honoring religious observances.
—School Library Journal
