Overview

Touch, turn, open, and learn! This lively interactive guide to a Passover seder is a perfect introduction for children. Emily Sper is also the author-illustrator of Hanukkah: A Counting Book (F '01).

From the innovative creator of Hanukkah: A Counting Book in English, Hebrew, and Yiddish comes The Passover Seder. There's no other book like this in the marketplace! Along with a simple retelling of the Passover story, this novelty book takes readers through a hands-on seder experience. Open a Hagaddah; turn a seder plate to match symbolic foods; lift the napkin and "break" the middle matzah; touch matzah, parsley and a pillow; pour drops of wine to symbolize the ten plagues; help the Jews cross the Red Sea; search for the hidden afikomen; and open the door to welcome Elijah the Prophet.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Clever paper engineering turns The Passover Seder by Emily Sper into interactive educational fun. Kids can rotate a seder plate laden with bitter herb, charoset, etc., to match each item with its English and Hebrew names (transliteration is provided); pull a tab to "spill" a drop of wine for each of the 10 plagues; and look behind flaps to find the afikoman. The text outlines the steps of a seder and adds bonus facts (e.g., why the Red Sea doesn't always look blue). Bold yet polished graphics ensure a strong visual appeal.

Children's Literature
This well-written book mixes a timeless story with lift-the-flap activities that give young children a literal feeling about the Passover holiday. Pages let children touch bumpy matzoh, scratchy "karpas" (bitter herbs) and the satiny pillow that cushions a Seder chair. They can "break" a matzoh, spin a Seder plate to match symbols with their names (in English and Hebrew), and "spill" a drop of wine for each of the 10 plagues. These activities support, rather than detract from, the simple but dramatic text such as, "Moses raised his staff and the Red Sea split, forming two walls of water! We walked on the bottom of the sea until we reached the other side. We were free!" This book would be a good read-aloud all year round, to reinforce the history of the Jews, and to remind children of the celebration that will come again each spring. 2003, Scholastic,
