Joyful Song – Kirkus Starred Review

Levine Querido commissioned Susan Gal to illustrate, Joyful Song, the story of a Jewish families naming ceremony for their new baby. The book will be published May 2024 and has already received a Kirkus Starred Review!

An excerpt from Kirkus’s review: Featuring vibrant colors, cozy details, and exuberantly swooping brushwork, the illustrations pair perfectly with the text, which has a folkloric feel. Both words and art brim with warmth; the love and support in this diverse community are palpable.
