Staff Reviews


Frazee bases In Every Life on a Jewish baby-naming call and response blessing she attended in 1998. For years, she attempted to adapt and illustrate it for a picture book to no avail, and it wasn't until 2020 "when so many things in our world were upended" and she welcomed her own first grandchild that she succeeded.

One simple line tops each two-page spread, illustrated by 10 vignettes of the human experience — "In every birth, blessed is the wonder" or "In every sadness, blessed is the comfort." A wordless two-page spread follows, illustrating the awesomeness of nature.

So quiet, so majestic, so simple but so detailed… every time you read it, you notice something else.

— Jennifer G.
