Miriam at the River

By Jane Yolen
Picture Books

The sun has not risen yet, but Miriam is already at the bank of the Nile River with her baby brother, Moses. Carefully, she places him in a basket and sends him floating down the river. With faith in God and His divine plan, Miriam eagerly awaits the future. I loved this beautiful retelling of the original Bible story and the vibrant illustrations on each page; it is perfect for younger readers.
