Words with Friends
On Tuesdays, we like to take a moment to highlight one of our distributed publishers in a segment we call Words with Friends.
Two books for young readers from distributed line NewSouth Books have earned glowing reviews—one from Publishers Weekly and one from a true fan and great reader!
Of Matzo Frogs, by Sally Rosenthal (with illustrations by David Sheldon), Publishers Weekly wrote, ”Parents can laugh along with their children at the imaginative story by Rosenthal, a debut author and documentary film producer. Sheldon’s droll and clever images of frogs hopping to the rescue seamlessly complement the text.”
The great children’s blog This Kid Reviews Books wrote about an older NewSouth title, Greenhorn, which is currently being adapted to film. “This kid” Erik wrote, “This was a well-written nonfiction story about a Holocaust concentration camp survivor and the friend he makes in Aaron. But, it is also about so much more….The history taught in the book and the message [are] very important.”
