Children's LiteratureIn a rhyming text, Schotter describes the joys, activities, food, and other items that relate to this Jewish holiday. The family is ready and they have prepared everything for the evening seder. Young children will learn how the holiday is celebrated, but they will not learn why until they or someone reads to them the note at the end of the book. What will probably stick with them is the game where a matzoh or a piece of it is hidden and the prize given to the winner. The illustrations show an intergenerational family and have a cartoonish quality. Since the story also has a bit of humor relating to the matzoh hunt, the style is a good fit. For added challenge readers are asked to find the pictured items from the special Passover celebration within the illustration in the book. 2006, Little Brown, Ages 3 to 6.
