Reviews
The story of the Exodus from Egypt begins for the very young. . .The full-bleed watercolor illustrations depict a lush and detailed setting of flowers, butterflies, and fish. . .Sweet and pretty.
--Kirkus Reviews

. . .As Moses floats toward yet-unknown safety, Yacowitz's gently rolling rhymes and Downing's inventively framed watercolors--rendered in washes of emerald, citrine, and lapis--he enters a world far more benevolent than what he faced on shore. . .By the time Pharaoh's daughter lifts Moses from the water in this quietly beautiful story, it seems that all of nature has determined to protect the infant.
--Publishers Weekly

The simple yet beautiful lyrical poetry and Julie Downing's soothing wildlife illustrations give both adults and children a sense of God's peace. It's a creative retelling that parents and children can read together again and again.
