Baby Moses in a Basket

author: Caryn Yacowitz
illustrator: Julie Downing

In the time of the pharaohs, a loving mother saves her son by tucking him into a basket and setting him afloat on the wide, wild Nile River. Over one long night, the creatures of the Nile—Curious Ibis, Mama Hippo, Mighty Crocodile—watch over Moses, nudge him on his way, and keep him safe through catching reeds and a raging storm. As morning breaks, the river delivers the baby safe and sound into an unexpected safe haven—the welcoming arms of the pharaoh’s daughter. With a poetic text and sumptuous watercolors, Caryn Yacowitz and Julie Downing introduce the youngest readers to Moses and the Exodus story and weave a warm, reassuring tale of love and comfort. Ideal for Passover and year-round, this universal story invites little ones of any faith to experience a thrilling journey in perfect, protected safety.

The story of a tiny baby’s epic journey—and the surprising help he gets along the way—in a touching, transcendent picture book.
