About The Book
"In Creation's First Light, Sandy Sasso has drawn on one of the most beautiful Jewish myths, that of the light of the first day, and retold it in a wonderful way that children will never forget."
Howard Schwartz, author of Leaves from the
Garden of Eden: One Hundred Classic Jewish Tales
"A beautiful story to help us remember that the original
light of the creator shines in each and every one."
Eric Kimmel, author of Hershel And The Hannukah
Goblins and The Golem's Latkes
We are pleased to announce the launch of her latest book Creation’s First Light created in conjunction with illustrator Joani Keller Rothenberg.
What makes this book different?
While there are many books of creation, few if any talk about the light of the first day and how it differs from the lights of the sun and the moon. Legend and imagination combine to tell the story of creation’s first light, what
happened to it and the surprising places where we can still find it.
This is a beautifully illustrated creation story for children of all ages. Based on the first chapter in Genesis, it would be of particular interest to the following:
• All those on a spiritual journey
• Libraries and schools
• New parents, grandparents and the entire family
