"A soothing Hebrew lullaby takes on added meaning for a refugee family in this visually stunning debut.” ~ The Children’s Book Council
"This book can be read as a simple bedtime story or discussed as an immigrant tale. Either way, it will likely find a receptive audience with Jewish families in search of bedtime books, or families looking for immigrant stories.” ~ School Library Journal
Illustrated by Israeli artist, Noar Lee Naggan, Lilah Tov Good Night is a visually stunning tale told from two perspectives. Through the eyes of a child, it’s a wondrous journey that celebrates the beauty of the natural world. At the same time, adult readers will recognize the plight of a refugee family, fleeing their homeland in search of a better life. For parents who wish to broach the topic of immigration with their children, the book offers a timely opportunity to do so through the adventures of a curious young girl.
Lilah Tov Good Night is inspired by the Jewish experience, but it is also a universal immigrant story of seeking out a new life in a new land and one that will sit nicely on the bookshelf alongside such titles as Carmela Full of Wishes, The Keeping Quilt, and All the Way to America.
