Jewish Values: Moses Basket, The

Number of Pages: 
32 p.
Note: 
The role of Miriam, Moses's sister, is emphasized in this fresh approach to the biblical story. Her future as a prophet is foreshadowed by her prediction that Pharoah's daughter will take care of the child and when this comes true, Miriam dances and sings in a manner reminiscent of her song of jubilation after the crossing of the Red Sea. The illustrations are in muted browns, blues, and greens and their formal style suggests Egyptian temple decoration. A good choice for reading aloud.
