Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a sheep on her family's farm starts acting strangely, Miriam is worried. Spring lambing season is over, so what could be wrong with Snowball? Then—surprise—the sheep gives birth to triplets! When she realizes that the mother has enough milk for only two of her newborns, Miriam knows that the third baby will have to be bottle-fed every four hours. But it's almost Passover, and the family is about to leave for her grandparents' seder. And it's Miriam's turn this year to ask the Four Questions, which she's been practicing for weeks! When Miriam's father decides that they must stay home to care for the lamb, it's up to Miriam to think of a clever and—hilariously fitting—way to rescue both the baby lamb and her family's holiday.  

Author Linda Marshall based this out-of-the-ordinary Passover tale on a true event that took place on her own farm, weaving in details about sheep farming and infusing it with the warmth shared by a loving family. Readers will root for Miriam and her Passover lamb! 

Review:

"In this delightful and colorful Passover story based on an event that took place on author Marshall's farm, a girl named Miriam notices that one of her family's sheep, Snowball, is acting strangely as she tends to the flock shortly before the holiday begins. Concerned for Snowball's health as well as for her own chances of attending her grandparents' seder if the sheep is sick, Miriam runs to her parents for help. When Miriam's family realizes that Snowball is about to give birth, and indeed soon does, Miriam is torn. Although she desperately wants to sing the mah nishtana (four questions) at her grandparents' seder, she can't imagine deserting the needy newborn. Using her knowledge of the Passover story, Miriam devises a creative plan to keep everyone, including the baby sheep, happy. Charming watercolor illustrations and friendly humor enliven this entertaining holiday tale. Ages 6 — 9. Illustrator's agent: Abigail Samoun, Red Fox Literary. (Jan.)"
