Nachshon, Who was Afraid to Swim - A Passover Story

By Deborah Bodin Cohen
Illustrated by Jago
Ages 3-8, Grades PreK-2
32 pages, Kar-Ben Publishing

The biblical legend of the brave boy who was the first to step into the sea when the waters parted for Moses will inspire children to examine and deal with some of their own fears. A wonderful story for Passover!

"Cohen succeeds in transporting the Exodus story to a personal scale without robbing it of significance. Jago's highly stylized...pictures are handsome and heartfelt: his gold-hued palette and mural-like compositions convey the heat and oppressiveness of Egypt, while his elaborately textured (and seemingly handmade) surfaces make the pages feel burnished by the forces of history and faith." �Publishers Weekly

"Cohen has successfully fictionalized the scant biblical account and embellished the midrash to create a child-friendly picture book about overcoming fear, trusting in God, and believing in oneself...The digitally prepared, mixed-media illustrations...complement and enhance the text marvelously. A wonderful, unique addition." �School Library Journal

�Children are natural yogis!� say the authors. �They love to pretend to be an animal or an object or a letter. And once they have learned the poses, they can combine them to spell their names, act out stories and sing alphabet songs.�
