Note: 
Greengard and Racklin-Siegel's new book recounts the story of Moses’ origins as told in Exodus 1-2. The female-centered story of self-sacrifice and courage focuses on the women who protected Moses and guaranteed his survival from the Pharaoh’s decree to kill every newborn Jewish boy. It follows the same word-for-word translation format of their previous books in the series, giving one paragraph per page of the story in both Hebrew and English. Bright and colorful reproductions of silk paintings highlight each passage and bring the text to life. A literal translation and an extensive glossary of Hebrew words further reinforce the educational value of the book for young people learning to expand and reinforce their Hebrew vocabulary.
