"All Kinds of Strong" written by Sharon Reiss Baker, illustrated by me...
Despite being small and frail, Sadie Rose is strong in other ways. She never forgets to check the chicken coops so the foxes can’t get in. She notices when the farm animals are sick. And she always has a new idea when it’s needed. Even so, her neighbors worry that she’s not strong enough for life on a farm. But when there’s a calamity and friends and family can no longer celebrate the Sabbath in their neighbor’s parlor, Sadie Rose comes up with an idea that proves that there are “all kinds of strong."

"This is a wonderful story about a physically challenged eight year old girl who helps her family, neighbors, and community. She shows that there are many ways to be a strong young girl. This book is a good introduction to the Jewish farming history of Eastern Connecticut. The illustrations are beautiful throughout. Children (and grandchildren) will enjoy this story when they are in their early years in elementary school. Highly recommended!"
