Praise For Baxter, the Pig Who Wanted to Be Kosher…
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly, June 28, 2010:
"Snyder and Goldin go together like matzo balls and chicken soup: the bright, daffy prose and ebulliently goofy cartoon and photo collages will persuade readers that they don't have to be Jewish to enjoy Baxter's spiritual journey—which ends, happily enough, at the Shabbat table of a kindly rabbi. Yes, of course he's a guest. What did you think?"
Review, School Library Journal, August 1, 2010:
"Delightfully expressive and comical..."
Review, The Horn Book Magazine, September & October, 2010:
"In-the-know readers will be tickled pink by mensch Baxter...while the uninitiated will quickly catch on."
Review, Kirkus Reviews, July 15, 2010:
"This will...find plenty of use in Jewish homes, particularly among families in which one parent is not Jewish."
Review, Curled Up With A Good Kid's Book (site), December 2010:
"The smart dialogue ... effortlessly educates readers about the Jewish holiday called Shabbat right alongside an adorable pig who shares the same goal ... charming story with equally charming illustrations ..."
