Note: 
A grandmother tells her granddaughter that she was scared when she and her family left the old country, but they made new friends and a new life. “Definitely some bitter but even more sweet.” The author’s note about bitter and sweet in Jewish tradition helps to ground this story in authenticity. Orthodox readers should be aware that the mother doesn’t wear a head covering when she says the blessing over the Shabbat candles, and the female characters wear pants. Nowadays, with people moving all over the world for work and other opportunities, it’s not uncommon for a child to be caught up in the upheaval of a move, and this book can help children
