Description
In a quiet story with just the right touch of sentimentality, Oberman beautifully evokes a sense of continuity across generations. Enhancing his third-person narrative with a smattering of dialogue, he tells of the Jewish boy Adam, growing up in a shtetl, whose life drastically changes when famine and chaos in old Russia force his parents to immigrate to America. At parting, Adam's beloved grandfather gives the boy a gift, a prayer shawl, "my always prayer shawl", which was presented to the grandfather by his grandfather, for whom Adam was named. The abundantly detailed and wonderfully expressive pictures enrich the tranquil telling, which harks back to the biblical Adam, as it movingly depicts how memory and tradition add texture and richness to our lives--even as other things around us change.
