37 Days at Sea: Aboard the M.S. St. Louis, 1939 is high-ly
rec-om-mend-ed and includes an author's note with his-tor-i-cal
back-ground and a use-ful time-line of events." -- Emily Schneider,

"37 Days at Sea: Aboard the M.S. St. Louis, 1939 breathes new life into Holocaust literature for children with its usage of verse writing and a strong middle grade voice, and I believe would strongly fit the criteria for the Sydney Taylor Book Award as a Notable book." -- Rachel Simon, Youth Library Assistant, Newton, MA, Sydney Taylor Shmooze-- (6/22/2021 12:00:00 AM)
"The rhythmic flow draws the reader inside the narrative. You will want to read this book in one sitting, never letting go until the very last words. In addition, the layout and design of 37 Days at Sea add depth to the emotional events." -- Anne Dublin, retired teacher-librarian, Holy Blossom Temple, Author of Jacob and the Mandolin Adventure-- (10/1/2021 12:00:00 AM)
