Note: 
In her series of Bible stories, Jean Marzollo condenses details while preserving the story's spirit and meaning. The biblical account of Ruth and Naomi exemplifies chesed, lovingkindness, and this is the predominant theme of the story, shown by Ruth and Naomi's caring for one another and by the kindness shown to them by Boaz. The lilting illustrations extend the story by showing several generations of redheads, starting with Ruth and culminating with the birth of David, future King of Israel. A chorus of rabbits comments on the story, adding a childlike point of view.
