Summary
Celebrated author Leslea Newman unites a young boy and a stray kitten in a warm, lyrical story about Passover, family, and friendship.

Winner of the Sydney Taylor Book Award and the National Jewish Book Award, Welcoming Elijah by celebrated author Leslea Newman, unites a young boy and a stray kitten in a warm, lyrical story about Passover, family, and friendship.

Inside, a boy and his family sit around the dinner table to embrace the many traditions of their Passover Seder around the dinner table. Outside, a cat wonders, hungry and alone. When it's time for the symbolic Passover custom of opening the family's front door for the prophet Elijah, both the boy and the cat are in for a remarkable surprise.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Every year at the Passover seder, Jews take a moment to open their front doors and symbolically welcome in the prophet Elijah, a bringer of hope and redemption. In this story, the boy charged with opening the door finds not a prophet but a stray white kitten on the doorstep. "Elijah?" asks the boy. "Meow!" replies the adorable feline, who is immediately welcomed into the family. Newman structures the lead-up to this adoption as a series of contrasts and perspective shifts between "Inside"--the warm, happy home where an inclusive, multigenerational group is celebrating--and "Outside," where the kitten wanders and waits before finding its new home. "Inside, the boy waited/ for the Seder to start./ Outside, the kitten waited/ for the moon to rise"; "Inside, the boy broke/ the middle matzo in half./ Outside, the kitten split/ a twig in two." Gal's lushly textured ink and charcoal drawings and close-ups of happy, candlelit faces convey the warmth of holiday togetherness and communal care. Ages 5--8. (Jan.)"
