Jewish Values: Adam and Eve's New Day
Number of Pages:
Proving the truth of the maxim "less is more," this is an abbreviated and much improved version of a picture book entitled Adam and Eve's First Sunset: God's New Day, published by Jewish Lights in 2003. The original was one of Sasso and Rothenberg's least successful collaborations, with garish illustrations and a super-preachy text that distorted the midrash on which it was based. Condensed to what the publisher calls a board book, although it has more content than most board books, it is now reads as a gentle tale about Adam and Eve's fear of the dark and how it is overcome by their trust in God.
