Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 5-Truly a mixed bag, this book contains songs, stories, riddles, recipes, crafts, and other activities, some of which are quite unusual or innovative. Rush and Schwartz include information about the holiday's history and customs around the world and a well-done version of the Exodus story. Unfortunately, the folktales are uneven; some are quite interesting and well written, while others are precious or repetitive. The intended audience for the book is unclear. Though it is written in second person, as if speaking to a child, youngsters are unlikely to read the dense, small type. The crafts, ranging from simple paper-bag plague puppets to a sewn afikoman bag or an illuminated page of a Haggadah, will appeal to varying age groups. The explanations of the holiday are clear, but the writing gets redundant and trite at times. The black-and-white illustrations scattered throughout give the book a patchwork effect. They include photos, which are clear, if obviously posed, and a mix of children's and adults' art of varying quality. An extensive bibliography is appended. On the whole, the book comes across as a homemade effort. However, libraries serving large Jewish communities with high demand for Passover activity and recipe books may want to consider it as an additional purchase.-Amy Lilien-Harper, Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

    you need it if you have kids

    Passover is focused on kids and telling the story. Passover has a lot of fours. There are four cups, four sons/children, and four questions, so therefore the book has four PARTS and four CHAPTERS in each PART. Part One is the TELLING (haGaddah) of The Story; Part Two is Preparing for the Seder; Part Three is At The Seder; and Part Four is Concluding The Seder. Each chapter in the Parts is filled with stories, games, explanations, songs, insights, recipes, and craft projects. For example, in Chapter One, the Exodus story is introduced to the reader with stories, songs (an Exodus rap), midrash stories, a riddle, a game ('I am packing for the Exodus, I am taking an Apple, Bitter Herbs, C..., D...'), and a craft project (make a mural). The Chapter for the plagues tells how to make a plague puppet. In the Chapter on Miriam and the Hebrew Women, the reader can learn to make a tambourine. In Chapter 7, On The Seder plate, you learn about maror and betzah customs from around the world, learn to make charoses, or a charoset pyramid, or play a 'nut' game. Plus there is a recipe for red yemenite eggs. Chapter 8 on Matzah contains matzah customs, recipes, riddles, and folkstories. In Chapter 9, learn to make a 'Four Questions' kippah to wear. In Chapter 10, on Dayenu, you can learn to add new stanzas for your own updated Dayenu, or make a micrography, or perform an interesting custom with scallions. In Chapter 14, learn about modern Exoduses. And in Chapter 16, learn classic and new songs from Adir Hu, Ehad Mi Yodei-a, QUEN SUPIESE, Had Gadya, and Lo Yisa Goy. The book is a must for any household with kids.
