Letters of the English alphabet are put to use introducing Passover concepts, such as matzah, wine, Egypt, fiery bush, and slavery, in this book for young listeners and readers. Each of these concepts then has a question asked about it for the reader to answer; every page has one item or topic represented in rhymes and illustrations. Interactive and full color searches take place for the story, foods, symbols, and customs of the holiday. Some of the pages show family members at the seder enjoying the celebration, while others show historical scenes from the Bible story and Haggadah. An example: The page entitled Red Sea has “As Jews crossed the Red Sea on dry land, what was Moses holding in his hand?” accompanied by a representation of Moses in long flowing robe and sandals, holding both a staff and an umbrella. Humorous illustrations add to the text. The last page contains an informative paragraph about Passover and also the answer key to all the interactive questions. Jewish content abounds throughout.
This book is particularly good for children in preschool and elementary school who already have some knowledge of the Passover story.
