On the first day of creation, God said, Let there be light,; and there was light. But it was not until the fourth day that God created the light of the sun and the moon.
What is the light of the first day and how does it differ from the lights of the day and the night?
Legend and imagination combine to tell the story of creation's first light, what happened to it and the surprising places where we can still find it.
Sandy Eisenberg Sasso was the first woman to be ordained from the Reconstructionist Rabbinical College. She is the author of 12 award-winning children’s books and one book for adults, Midrash - Reading the Bible with Question Marks.
Her latest book for children, The Shema in the Mezuzah was selected as the 2012 Best Children’s Illustrated Book by the National Jewish Book Council. There are nearly a half million copies of her books in print. Rabbi Sasso lectures nationally on children and spirituality and nurturing spirituality and creativity through midrash.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- While this is a beautifully illustrated, simple to read children's book, it has a powerful message and a light all of its own.
