Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Offering both an authoritative guide and a well-crafted story, Goldin ( Just Enough Is Plenty ; Cakes and Miracles ) thoughtfully and elegantly explains the traditions of Passover. She sets the stage by recounting Moses and the Israelites' journey out of Egypt, then takes readers step by step through the 14 sections of the seder, the ritual meal that begins the holiday. In an invitingly conversational style, Goldin outlines the historic and symbolic significance of the different rituals and foods, emphasizes the importance of remembrance (she describes the Warsaw Ghetto uprising, which erupted during Passover in 1943, and suggests that Holocaust survivors and Soviet emigres be invited to share their memories) and discusses ways of personalizing the seder. Sidebars highlight related topics, from ancient Baghdad customs to the omission of Moses from the Haggadah, the Passover prayerbook. Waldman's ( The Ty ger ) radiant watercolors underscore the changing moods of the text, with earthy browns and reds dominating the illustrations of the Exodus, and dusky purples and twilight blues suffusing the pages devoted to specific elements of the seder. All ages. (Feb.)
School Library Journal
Gr 3-6-Goldin tells the story of the Exodus and explains the traditions of the Passover Seder. She has integrated midrashim (invented tales used to explain certain occurrences and phenomena) into her retelling of the Biblical account. The result is an enriched interpretation of the Passover story, incorporating history and folklore. In describing how Jews today can relive the Exodus experience, she is insightful and inventive. Her writing is graceful- simple, but eloquent. The beautifully designed book showcases Waldman's mastery of the art of watercolor. The pages are suffused in a graded wash of color, some beginning with a peach blush that fades to lighter tones like a sunset; others are awash in pastel blue and aqua, punctuated with fuschia and earth tones. Varied stylized borders and two-dimensional perspectives reflect the influence of Egyptian art. This resonant text can be used as a haggadah or as a companion to it, or as an introduction to Passover.-Marcia Posner, Federation of New York and the Jewish Book Council, New York City
Stephanie Zvirin
A beautiful wedding of the work of two talented individuals, this exquisitely designed book celebrates the Jewish holiday of Passover by sharing with readers both its bittersweet history and its customs. In the first section, Goldin mixes material from the book of Exodus with rabbinic stories based on the biblical texts to dramatically and lucidly retell the Passover saga--from the Israelites' enslavement by the wicked Pharaoh to the trials of Moses, the 10 plagues, and the deliverance from Egypt. The second portion of the book, equally well handled, explains the origins and symbolism of the Seder (the Passover meal commemorating the Israelites' freedom from bondage) and its special parts. Goldin speaks simply, warmly, and directly throughout the book and lets her own love of the holiday shine through--especially in an appended section in which both she and illustrator Waldman share a few personal Passover memories. The many illustrations are an attractive mix of bold graphics and soft colors. The geometric borders and pastels characteristic of Waldman's work are evident everywhere. This time, though, they're combined with stylized, classic Egyptian hieroglyphic figures and set against softly tinted pages that actually glow. The handsome pictures will lure kids to the fine text, which answers fundamental questions about one of the most beautiful holidays of the Jewish calendar. A book for family sharing as well as a rich source of information.
