Told through the eyes of Bezalel, grandson ok Miriam and great nephew of Moshe, this is the telling of the Jews' journey through the desert , witnessing of HaShem's miraculous feeding and care for His people and the giving if the Torah at Mount Sinai. Bezalel is the artist that HaShem chose to build the Holy Ark. I'm a huge of fan of Jules and her work is a must have for Jewish libraries

Miriam is the protagonist and Bezalel the narrator in this telling of the exodus, though Moses is still performing miracles in the periphery. Places child in the story, giving voice to those grumbling to return to slavery, too. Focus on thanking and praising God. Lovely illustrations.

I loved the length and viewpoint of this book--and would like to try more by this author. Not so long and exhaustive as other stories about the exodus.
