Foreword Review — Spring 2012
After her family moves to Minnesota so her father can look for work during the Great Depression, Hannah is the only Jewish child in her class. She’s lonely. But the opportunity to go on a picnic and meet new friends brings on anxiety for the young girl, whose observant family forbids riding in vehicles during the Sabbath. How can she communicate her concerns to her teacher and classmates? And what will their reaction be? A tender coming-of-age story, beautifully rendered. Ages five to nine.
