Baby Moses in a Basket

Author(s): Caryn Yacowitz; Julie Downing (Illustrator)

Mythology

The story of a tiny baby's epic journey--and the surprising help he gets along the way--in a touching, transcendent picture book.

In the time of the pharaohs, a loving mother saves her son by tucking him into a basket and setting him afloat on the wide, wild Nile River. Over one long night, the creatures of the Nile--Curious Ibis, Mama Hippo, Mighty Crocodile--watch over Moses, nudge him on his way, and keep him safe through catching reeds and a raging storm. As morning breaks, the river delivers the baby safe and sound into an unexpected safe haven--the welcoming arms of the pharaoh's daughter. With a poetic text and sumptuous watercolors, Caryn Yacowitz and Julie Downing introduce the youngest readers to Moses and the Exodus story and weave a warm, reassuring tale of love and comfort. Ideal for Passover and year-round, this universal story invites little ones of any faith to experience a thrilling journey in perfect, protected safety.
