Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In this appealing board book for toddlers, the traditional “Dayenu” song chanted at the Passover seder takes center stage. Bright illustrations depict scenes mentioned in the song, including many of the awesome miracles celebrated during the holiday. The Jews’ exodus from Egypt is shown with happy men, women, and children playing musical instruments and carrying their belongings; the sea splitting for the newly freed nation is charmingly simple, perfect for little learners. The “Dayenu” refrain, which recurs after each stanza, shows a rejoicing family enjoying different aspects of the traditional meal, including approaching the table set with wine and the seder plate; reading from the Hagaddah, the standardized prayer book for the meals; and eating typical Jewish fare of chicken soup and matzo balls. Small children will enjoy turning these pages and learning some basic details of the holiday. Up to age 3. (Feb.)
Kirkus Reviews
A joyful, child-friendly version of a traditional Jewish song. A large, extended family enjoys the Passover meal together. Verses tell the dramatic story of Exodus, which is depicted in simple, though sometimes crowded scenes (the Jews advancing over the bed of the Red Sea may even elicit chuckles). They alternate with the chorus, which is accompanied by depictions of the present-day traditional dinner. Repetition builds a sense of purpose and revival. "Day-Day-enu / Day-Day-enu, / Day-Day-enu, / Dayenu, Dayenu, Dayenu!" The modern-day little girl's actions are sweetly and recognizably childlike; she eagerly greets her grandparents, sips her soup and then falls asleep, curled up on the dining-room chair as her relatives continue their conversation. Here's a delightful addition to celebrate both religious identity and family togetherness. (Board book. 1-4)
