Kayla and her dog Kugel are back again and they could not be more excited about Passover. Kugel helps Kayla make a cover for her Haggadah and Kayla explains all about the seder. At this seder, Kugel definitely takes part in his own playful way and fun is had by all.
Koffsky’s illustrations for this book are wonderful and Kugel the dog steals the show. The colors are a comforting balance of bright and muted. The family love and humor are felt throughout. The textured illustrations contribute to the warm feeling. This book is great for starting conversations about Passover with young children and introducing them to many of the holiday’s concepts. There is also a great letter written by the author included in the back of the book which gives adults some guidance about making these discussions with children effective and has suggestions for activities.
Don’t miss out on the previous Kayla and Kugel book either; these books are an enjoyable romp. Recommended for ages 3 – 6.
