''A warmhearted introduction to coming-of-age in a worship community.'' -- Kirkus Reviews
''Almost a Minyan will mean a lot to Jewishly observant egalitarian families, especially those who remember the days when women couldn't count in a minyan. I appreciated the illustrations, how inclusive and varied the faces.'' -- Letty Cottin Pogrebin, founding editor, Ms. Magazine
''Together Kline and Simon have crafted a book about Jewish life that is accessible, thoughtful, and memorable. Children will enjoy being carried away by the illustrations and rhyming language. Parents and educators will appreciate the detail and opportunity to share pictures and words that reflect the richness of Jewish ritual and community. It is well worth a look by librarians and community organizations who seek to add cultural diversity to their children's collections. All told, Almost a Minyan is a solid example of children's literature that will give readers the ultimate gift--the opportunity to create memories of learning together.'' -- Rabbi Deborah Miller, booksandblintzes.com

''Almost a Minyan with words by Lori S. Kline is a delightful children's book that will have special appeal for girls and their brothers in Jewish households across the spectrum from Orthodox to secular.

''A beautiful coming-of-age story for the 21st century, reminding us of the power of tradition, community, and memory. A welcome addition to the bookshelves of families, educators and rabbis looking for a children's book that will inspire the next generation to be part of a Jewish community not only because of its sweet text but also because of the inclusive nature this community illustrates.'' --Rabbi Gail Swedroe, Assistant Rabbi Congregation Agudas Achim, Austin

I also appreciate that there is a lot of Jewish vocabulary here. Not always the same vernacular that I use, but I still appreciated having this book as a way to talk to my kids about all these Jewish words and symbols.
I'm looking forward to reading this book again and again.
