"The Remembering Tree is steeped in the notion of radical empathy. The book concludes with "the promise of two young girls who loved a tree and the tree who remembered them." In Sasso's lyrical and moral vision, Anne Frank's beloved chestnut tree serves as witness, persona, and educator. This gentle, powerful book deserves to be a classic work about tolerance for children and educators of all faiths." --Amy Gottlieb, Tikkun Daily--Reviews
