The Seventh Day
by Deborah Bodin Cohen
Illustrated by Melanie Hall
"Hall's mixed-media compositions swirl with color and energy." Publishers Weekly
This Jewish children's book is a poetic adaption of the creation story. God is likened to a potter, a painter and a musician. . . who molds desert canyons and riverbeds, paints the leopard's spots and the zebra's strips and creates the sounds of lions roaring and thunder cracking. When creation is finished on the seventh day, God calls all creatures to rest - and to celebrate.
