By Sylvia Rouss Illustrated by Liz Goulet Dubois Hardcover Ages 6-10 24 pages ~ 8 1/2 x 11
When baby brother Daniel arrives, big sister Sarah Leah doesn't see what all the fuss is about. Mommy and Daddy, as well as Aunt Judy, Bubbie and Zaydie, think he's an amazing miracle. Sarah thinks her whole family needs glasses!
As the days pass, the house is filled with joy as family and friends stop by to welcome baby Daniel and prepare for his brit. Sarah's baffled by all the excitement. What's so miraculous about a tiny baby with no teeth who cries all the time? A miracle, Sarah knows, is when God created the world in seven days, or when a drop of oil burned for eight days at Hanukkah.
In this first volume of the charmingly written and delightfully illustrated Growing Up Jewish With Sarah Leah Jacobs series, Sarah comes to love her baby brother and realize what a miracle he truly is.
"My Baby Brother is delightful, with a precious story. It will be a boon to families with siblings and a new baby in the house."
-- Jewish Media Review
"First in a planned series of books about a girl growing up Jewish, this begins as Sarah visits her mother and new brother in the hospital. When her mother declares the baby a "miracle," Sarah disagrees. . . . The household details may be different here, but children of many faiths will easily recognize Sarah's feelings."
