Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Silverman
This sweet, charming, and most of all fun, little book introduces Passover to very young children. It talks about absolutely everything—not only ingredients on the Seder plate, but the book (the Haggadah) that tells the story, and even the pillows that allow us to relax as free people—by asking simple questions. "I am white and oval. First I am boiled, and then I am roasted. What am I? What could I be?" The answer is under the flap of the facing page: "I am the egg on the Seder plate. That's me!" Even the youngest child can enjoy this book. Although its audience is probably limited to Jewish nursery schools and daycare centers. I can imagine children shouting out the answers, trying to be first, and a creative storyteller, whether teacher, parent, or older sibling, creating games to hold their attention. It is probably not for libraries—those flaps can be too easily torn—but for individuals, or small groups at home or day care centers, I think it is ideal. Part of the "My Look and See Holiday" series. Reviewer: Judy Silverman
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2—A series of Passover symbols is presented in guessing-game format. For example: "I burn bright just before sunset at the beginning of the Seder. What am I? What could I be?" Lifting a large flap reveals the answer: "I am a holiday candle. That's me!" The same pattern and rhyme accompany each one, from the charoset to the matzah to the door that opens for the prophet Elijah. The book does not provide enough context to serve as an introduction to the holiday, but for children familiar with it, the riddles will be easy to guess. Male characters wear traditional head coverings, but the style of dress indicates that they are not Orthodox Jews. The digital cartoon illustrations pop with bright colors and sharp lines. The entertainingly interactive format will engage kids, and the wide coverage of symbols will please adults. A solid choice for Judaic collections and an additional one for public libraries.—Heidi Estrin, Feldman Children's Library at Congregation B'nai Israel, Boca Raton, FL
