“While other books for even the youngest readers have introduced a mensch here, and a bubbele there, Levy’s story is built on the specific and delightful premise that Yiddish is a language with superpowers.” –Jewish Book Council
“Toss some Yiddish words into your everyday conversation and all will be well.” –Kirkus Reviews
