Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"This is no ordinary pop-up book; open a page and the setting springs into three dimensions, a ship, a temple, street scenes from around the world of the Jewish diaspora. Each of Hanukkah's eight days has its own spread. Sabuda's intricate and inventive paper engineering is a little miracle in keeping with the miraculous oil of the event that Hanukkah commemorates. Rosen's text is in the shade of the white paper architecture, but the theme of the enduring spirit of Judaism emerges. A stunning achievement. Ages 5 — up. (Sept.)â–" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
