Newmarket Press is calling this debut a "hardcover gift book" since it's a slim volume full of original drawings by Art Glazer to go along with the often hilarious text. Ruthie is a recently widowed 72 year old Jewish woman living in New York City whose granddaughter has given her a year of yoga lessons "To help you grieve, Bubby. It will be healing for you." Ruthie's adventure into the new language and rituals of yoga will be healing for every reader of this book, since we all know that laughter is the best medicine! The reader will learn some things too--there is a Yiddish AND a yoga glossary included. But most importantly, they will learn that loss and advanced years do NOT have to slow anyone down or keep anyone from changing. This book is a gift all right--a gift of warm joy and slightly teary eyes to everyone who reads it. ( )
