review 1: This story is a striking tale of the Jewish departure from Russia. It reminded me significantly of the musical The Fiddler on the Roof in the design of the story and of the story itself. There is a lot of hope infused in its pages, and the illustrations are wonderful. They are...

review 1: This book seemed a little too wordy for a children's picture book. The story of this book is so amazing about how a teacher for special education made the children in her class feel like they can accomplish anything they can set their minds too. This was considered a realistic ...
