The Purim Story
Purim may be our most colorful holiday and it certainly lays a good claim to being the most fun. That is why so many retellings of the story are filled with colorful illustrations and told in sprightly rhyme. Sarah Mazor’s version fits that bill, too, but what gives this one a special twist is the section at the end, which discusses the laws and customs of the holiday as these, too, are taught in clever rhyme and are also accompanied by illustrations. The story-in-rhyme is preceded by a slightly more serious prose explanation of the holiday’s history as well as a glossary.
