Synopsis: Vivid folk-art paintings and biblical vignettes profile fourteen extraordinary women of the Old Testament, including Sarah, Rachel, Ruth, Esther, and Deborah.
From School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 2-Biblical women are mostly anonymous appendages to important males, so a large picture book identifying 14 of them by name (the Queen of Sheba still has only a title) is a worthwhile project. Thus, the shortcomings of this volume are particularly disappointing. Each of the women featured is alloted an average of 100 words: a dictionary entry, a bare outline, a sketch of an incident. Diminished by isolation from their context, these vignettes are so terse that children won't be able to judge whether the subjects are possible models, or connected to them in any way. (Nor has the patriarchal disappeared: Leah and Rachel's text gives the final paragraph to Jacob, noting that "his sons became the ancestors" of Israel. They were Leah and Rachel's sons, too. Zeldis's primitive paintings are brightly colored and childlike, with some amusing details and touches (pink lambs with blue faces). The limits of her style leave all the women looking much alike, however. Oddly proportioned and flipper-footed, they might appeal more to sophisticated viewers than to the neophytes addressed by the spare texts.
