A bit long for a picture book, but the story should be clear to older children. Balaam, a non-Jewish prophet, knows his prophecies come from God. The prayer, Ma Tovu, the beginning of Shaharit, the morning service, comes from one of Balaam's prophecies. The pictures are colorful; the angel looks like a Renaissance angel.The author explains that the story uses the most recent JPS translation of Numbers: 23-24 as well as Robert Alter's commentary in The Art of Biblical Narrative (Basic Books, 1981).
