Note: 
Seven-year-old Miriam tells how she sends her baby brother floating in a basket on the Nile where Pharaoh’s daughter finds the baby and adopts him as her own. Yolen’s poetic language sets this retelling apart: “Mother has woven the basket so tightly, / it does not sink, but skips / over little schools of fish, / glossy as silver bangles.” The theme here is simple and strong: “Sometimes courage comes / from what you do, / sometimes from what you do not do.” - AJL review
