Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A girl explores the meaning of the Jewish holiday of Passover by asking questions about her family's special traditions. The sights, sounds and tastes of Passover can be found in every corner of the girl's home. Her mother explains how Passover is a week to "eat special Passover dishes," and a time to remove all leavened bread from the house. The holiday smells-chicken soup, gefilte fish, apples, nuts and cinnamon-waft through the kitchen as Grandmother cooks, and the sounds of Passover ring out when the girl's father and brother read from "the Haggadah, the Passover service book." The loving, dynamic family unit depicted here laudably expresses equal amounts of respect and joy in their holiday preparations. In her first book for children, Fishman offers a clear, thorough presentation of the religious significance of this celebration that never sounds didactic. Her work will prove comforting to Jews and illuminating to non-Jews. Hall's (July Is a Mad Mosquito) rich mixed-media creations bustle with energy, and her warm portraits of a contemporary family are also amply decorated with religious symbols and snippets of biblical scenes. Ages 5-up. (Apr.)
Children's Literature - Children's Literature
A young girl hears her father singing a Passover song, and soon the whole family is preparing for the celebration. Mother, Father, Grandmother, Brother, and Sister good-naturedly answer questions the youngest member of the family asks every year. In the process, the reader learns how and why Jews celebrate Passover. While there is no plot, the narrative is wrapped in the warmth of family cohesiveness, giving the expository text a cozy dimension. The most lyrical lines come when the narrator discusses the holiday in terms of her five senses, describing what she can see, taste, touch, smell, and hear. The brilliant illustrations, rendered in various shades of green and purple, are engaging and creative. Vegetables float above a steaming pot opposite the page that describes the smell of Grandmother's Passover cooking. The Israelites walk across the desert behind a picture of three sisters holding a plate of matzah. This book is one in a series of books about the Jewish holidays by the same author and illustrator. Readers and educators in search of introductory information about Passover traditions and customs will be pleased with this attractive book. A glossary completes the package. 2000 (orig. 1997), Aladdin Paperbacks, Ages 5 to 10, $16.00 and $5.99. Reviewer: Jackie Hechtkopf
Children's Literature - Karen Saxe
Through the eyes of a young girl, we learn the meaning of Passover, the Jewish holiday dedicated to remembering the escape from enslavement by the Egyptians. Generally, the traditions are meant to be reminders of what it is like to be under the unjust power of others. This is an appealing version of the Passover story, and young readers will enjoy learning about these traditions from this book.
School Library Journal
K-Gr 3A comfortable picture-book introduction to a beloved holiday. A young girl shares the preparations and the rituals that are part of the traditional Passover seder. The sights, smells, tastes, sounds, and feelings of the observance are conjured up by a rhythmic text that conveys information and recreates the joy of the celebration. The motion and muted colors of the appealing collagraph and mixed-media illustrations glow with the warmth of the occasion. The different textures and hues naturally blend together pictures of the narrator's family with religious and biblical images.Amy Kellman, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
Kirkus Reviews
In an impressive debut, Fishman captures the emotion of the Passover celebration through the observations of a young narrator who recounts her family's annual preparations for the holiday. Childlike, fluid prose evokes sights, sounds, smells, feelings, and rituals, as the girl helps her mother take out the special dishes, pots, and pans, and the objects used before the holiday to remove all traces of leavened bread from the house: "That night we light the candle and carry it around the darkened house. The flame sends shadow people dancing on the walls as the feather sweeps forgotten bits of leavened bread into the spoon." Scratchy mixed-media illustrations are a worthy counterpart to the text, combining images of the preparations and the symbols of the holiday in a swirl of textures and line. In soft pinks, greens, and gold, figures glide in and out of borders, furniture tilts and floats, vegetables dance over the cooking pot, and visions of other times and events long past fill the pages. A welcome addition to the holiday shelf.
