"Hurray! Hurray! Matzo frogs to the rescue! Sally Rosenthal takes us on a delightful romp. A picture book with a message." --Michelle Edwards, Author of Chicken Man and Alef-Bet "I love this story. I laughed so hard. How do I get the frogs to come to my house?" --Eric A. Kimmel, Author of Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins "I like this book because it has frogs, it tells how to make matzo ball soup, and explains how to do sculpture. Also the frogs look like most of my relatives." --Daniel Pinkwater, Author of Beautiful Yetta, the Yiddish Chicken and Beautiful Yetta's Hannukah Kitten "What child doesn't like frogs and matzo ball soup? This appealing combination teaches about the mitzvot of helping others, celebrating Shabbat and being a good neighbor." --Rabbi Deborah Bodin Cohen, Author of the Engineer Ari series and Nachson, Who Was Afraid to Swim "I loved Matzo Frogs, found it wonderfully silly - the illustrations are fantastic!" --Sarah Lamstein, Author of Big Night for Salamanders "In Matzo Frogs, kindness begets kindness, and "one mitzvah leads to another" as Jewish neighbors help one another in various ways. The story's amusing arc with its altruistic message culminates with a sculpted matzo-ball frog left as a floating clue in the soup, prompting one more mitzvah in grateful acknowledgment. A Jewish audience will appreciate the overall significance of the concept and context; Gentiles will get a kick out of the kind frogs." --Kirkus Reviews "A hopping-good children's book about acts of kindness. Matzo Frogs is a fun tale, delightfully told and superbly illustrated." --Si Dunn, Books, Books & More (New) Books "The story is clever . . . The frogs are simply adorable. This is a perfect book for children--and adults--who love frogs and for parents looking to teach their children the meaning of a good deed." --Rachel Esserman, The Reporter "A humorous tale. Parents can laugh along with their children at the imaginative story by Rosenthal. Sheldon's droll and clever images of frogs hopping to the rescue seamlessly complement the text." --Publishers Weekly "Kids (and adults) will love Matzo Frogs from the first line. This book highlights teamwork and good deeds, with a mini-cooking lesson thrown in by fun, cute frogs. Matzo Frogs is great not only for Jewish children but also as a teaching tool to explain a small aspect of the Jewish faith." --Ivory Owl Reviews "Beautifully illustrated, Matzo Frogs is a hilarious story with a great message for young readers about the importance of mitzvot, community, and teamwork. Watch how the frogs become wonderful chefs and save the day!" --The Association of Jewish Libraries Newsletter "An entertaining book, delightfully illustrated." --Sue Tomchin, Jewish Woman Magazine "In Matzo Frogs author Sally Rosenthal depicts frogs who are true friends, and David Sheldon's art adds to the whimsical features of the tale. Good deeds and cooperation are emphasized. A delightful story. Recommended." --Congregational Libraries Today "In this delightful debut picture book that recalls the fairy tale of the shoemaker and the elves, frogs enthusiastically pitch in to do a mitzvah for their kindhearted neighbor. David Sheldon, illustrator of more than eighty books for children, has filled the pages with lively bright green frogs, clearly delighted to have been able to perform [his own] act of kindness." --Jewish Book World
