    The main themes in this book were obedience and faith. It also talked about tradition and the commitment to the Sabbath. The illustrations were great to look at and the colors worked with each other. Joseph had so much faith in God to receive the gift that they had just been informed about. The story also has a great story about the relationship between the lion and Joseph.

    It feels odd to give this book a rating? So I won’t. But this was such a sweet children’s book!

    A North African folktale of a young boy en-route to Egypt with a caravan. Instead of violating the Sabbath, the young boy stays put in the middle of desert, while the rest of the caravan moved on, despite the promise of the caravan leader to the boy's mother. A lion comes along, out of no-where and stays with the boy, not only till after the Sabbath, but helps the boy on his journey to Egypt. A very moving tale of staying true to one's faith and the rewards one benefits. The story is complemente A North African folktale of a young boy en-route to Egypt with a caravan.

What is appreciated, is that Howard Schwartz provides the sources for the folktale.

    This is the story of the sabbath lion, a lion sent by the "sabbath queen" to protect a young Jewish boy in exchange for his commitment to the sabbath tradition. There were several themes in the book that stood out, but the values of obedience and faith are highlighted beautifully in this story. Although this is a Jewish folktale, the story is told by Jews in North Africa and is rich in cultural language. Students would learn basic Jewish terminology associated with foods too!

    I enjoyed reading this book. One of the things I liked was that, in the book the illistrations usually gave clues to help with understanding what the words were, a lot of the context centers around a Jewish holiday some of the pracrices or words are not common. I think this would be a great book to use in a culture lesson. I think the main traits of this book are Ideas and Organization. I leveled this book using GLE (5.2) and Lexile (900L).
