Reviews
2023 New England Book Award Winner
"Moushabeck's text combined with Madooh's illustrations thoughtfully showcase dignity, joy, and resistance along with profound senses of loss and love of community." -- Shelf Awareness, starred review
"... [A] stirring tale with details that evoke the senses. A beautiful tale of family, love for a lost homeland, and remembrance." -- Kirkus Reviews
"In Hannah Moushabeck's "Homeland: My Father Dreams of Palestine," a Palestinian father refashions memories of his youth in the Old City of Jerusalem into bedtime stories for his daughters.

. . . These are titles I want my own child exposed to. And I want non-Jewish families to read books that represent our full humanity, in all our particular Jewish vulnerability and joy." -- New York Times
