We rated this book:


Hiding Baby Moses is a retelling of the early days of Moses from the Christian Bible. Moses’s sister watches as her mother prepares a basket for Baby Moses. With sadness in her eyes, tears begin to fall. She gently kisses him one last time before placing her son in the Nile River with hopes someone will find and care for him. On their way home, Moses’s sister stops; she sees Pharaoh’s daughter and her attendants approaching. When she discovers they’ve found the baby, she offers to find a nursing mother. She runs to her mom, and in a remarkable twist of fate, Mama and Baby Moses are reunited.

This is a beautiful and heartfelt account of a mother trying to save her baby from the demise of an evil king. It encompasses love and loss, protection and motherhood, hope and faith. The author uniquely gives voice to Moses’s sister, allowing readers to hear the story from a fresh perspective. Youth ages five to nine will find it relatable, since she’s just a young child herself. They’ll be entranced by the magnificent illustrations throughout; they’re so realistic and detailed, youth will feel a part of them as if they’ve been welcomed into the tale and magically transported back in time.
