From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2—As is often customary, Joshua Jacobs provides his Bar Mitzvah guests with personalized kippot (head coverings) to wear during the prayer service and celebration. His uncle takes his kippah home with him to Los Angeles and wears it on Rosh Hashanah. During the outdoor Tashlich ceremony, a big gust of wind blows the skullcap away and it lands on the head of Benjamin Brody, who takes it home to Australia. As the yarmulke changes heads, it travels to Israel, Paris, Argentina, and Miami, celebrating the Jewish holidays of Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Hanukkah, and Purim, until it coincidentally makes its way back to New York for Passover, where Josh discovers it in a box in the synagogue on Shavuot. While it's fun to read the different inscriptions on the kippot and imagine the stories behind them, Elissa fails to provide readers with anything more than a basic geography lesson and a brief journey through the Jewish calendar. Cheerful watercolor illustrations add energy and enthusiasm, a helpful glossary is appended, the depiction of women wearing kippot is inclusive, and there is a nice message about the oneness of the world Jewish community. However, there isn't much of a story here that will attract readers, especially those outside the Jewish community.—Rachel Kamin, North Suburban Synagogue Beth El, Highland Park, IL
