It isn’t often that Jewish children books written for the Shomer Shabbat market get reviewed, which is why I was thrilled when author Judith Pransky told me she is now reviewing books in the Philadelphia Jewish Link.
Even more exciting was that she chose Layla’s Vistaville Summer as one of the first books to review. Then I read the review, which said, in part:
“The reader is drawn along, eager to find out more about the family relationships and the hidden mystery. The book is a quick read, with sentences that flow, and vocabulary that is easy to comprehend. But the characters and storyline have depth and interest, and the reader grows along with Layla.”
You can read the whole review for yourself on page 30 of the Philadelphia Jewish Link.
Thank you so much Judith, The Philadelphia Jewish Link and all the readers who’ve enjoyed Layla’s diary! Her next adventure will be out this fall, but it’s not too late to get caught up with Layla’s time in Vistaville.
