Have you ever wondered what Jewish families do at the festival of Purim? In this children's board book, author Edie Stoltz Zolkower uses catchy poetic text to describe for toddlers how a family of woodland creatures, adorably illustrated by Barb Bjornson, make hamantaschen, a three-cornered filled pastry. Those who are familiar with the Scriptures will remember how Haman tried to destroy the Jews in Persia, but Queen Esther was able to save her people. "Make a circle, nice and flat, Pinch three corners, Haman's hat." Parents in Jewish families who want their children to understand their heritage, parents of children who have Jewish friends and want them to show respect for the Jewish customs, or even parents who just want their children to know more about the Jewish festivals, will appreciate this and other Very First Board Books from Kar-Ben Publishing. When It's Purim is the only one that I have seen thus far, but it is well done.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
