With this unique anthology, families will enjoy acting out the story of Esther for Purim, baking hallah for Shabbat, building a sukkah, and much, much more. Lavishly illustrated with scenes depicting holiday celebrations throughout history and the world, this comprehensive and handsome volume is the one holiday treasury no home should be without.
