Challah vs. Matza is a bright, colorful, amusing picture book that vividly communicates important Jewish values to children, including the lesson that although confrontation is not ideal, there are times when it is essential to advocate for one’s most important beliefs. Children will chuckle as the matzah stands up to the bully challah, but they will learn a bit about Jewish holidays and even more about standing up for themselves and what is important to them. The story is easy for children to relate to and identify with; the art is integral to the story and admirably communicates the message to even the youngest reader.
