Synopsis:
From award-winning author Linda Elovitz Marshall and illustrator Zara González Hoang comes this engaging picture book about celebrating Rosh Hashanah
Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur mark the beginning of the Jewish New Year. They offer a chance to think about the present and the past, to “measure” a year and ourselves.
This sweet and thoughtful picture book, perfect for reading aloud, invites young readers and their families to take stock of the happy times and the occasional regrets, as well as the new friends made and new skills gained over the year. Happy New Year! Shana Tova!

"The watercolor, colored pencil, and digital artwork portrays a diverse cast of children experiencing a variety of memorable moments throughout the year. . .[a] sweet, accessible book." 
—School Library Journal

" A splendid feature of this book is that, without the text’s specifically mentioning it, the delightful illustrations strongly imply that a year can also be measured by how much one has widened one’s circle and opened home, mind, and heart to others—that is, how inclusive one is regarding family, friends, and neighbors. The cheery art, created with watercolor, colored pencil, and Photoshop, presents a lovely display of humanity—perfect for a new year, every year, and every day." 
—Kirkus Reviews
