Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Another paperback Holiday Alphabet Book, P Is for Passover by Tanya Lee Stone, illus. by Margeaux Lucas, features die-cut pages shaped to accentuate the cover art, an otherwise unexceptional rendering of a fancy goblet, egg, matzoh, etc., on a seder plate. The text pairs a rhyming stanza with each letter of the alphabet. Sample: "M is for matzah/ Flat bread made of wheat/ Quickly baked before fleeing/ It's crispy to eat!" Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
The Passover story in rhyme, letter by alphabet letter, fills the pages of this cute softcover book diecut into an unusual shape that traces the wine cup on its cover. You won't get any sort of orderly progression here, however, because the ABCs rule the roost. This causes "A is for afikomen/ The search will be fun/ The broken Matzah is hidden/ And our story's begun" to start things off when in reality, the afikomen is the last thing eaten at the Seder meal. Using the alphabet letters also forced the author to find interesting and educational tidbits that are often left out of the usual holiday books, like "I is for infant" instead of baby Moses and "N is for Nisan," the month of the calendar. Not to worry, the rhymes are generally appealing and the jumping around keeps the story fresh. A complete Passover story is included at the end for proper perspective, after "Zzzzzz is the sleepy sound/ Tired kids make/ The Seder was fun/ But we can't stay awake!" The pictures are upbeat and engaging, and the attractive bright cover gives an inkling of the fun inside. 2003, Price Stern Sloan, Ages 3 to 7.
