Rebecca's Journey Home opens as two young brothers eagerly await their mom's return from Vietnam with their newly adopted baby sister Rebecca. The story follows the family through the baby's arrival, her first Shabbat in her new home, and her visit to the mikvah as she is converted to Judaism.
"The graphic-style pictures show the family bliss at home, the ritual of the baby's conversion to Judaism, and the ongoing celebration of her rich cross-cultural heritage." -- Booklist
"The author is successful in explaining both the intricacies of adoption procedures as well as details of life in an observant Jewish home. A smattering of Vietnamese culture is also included. The appealing and bright watercolor illustrations show touches of whimsy and lightheartedness that add to the story." -- School Library Journal
