When kind-hearted Minnie spills the matzo ball soup she was making for Shabbat dinner, the frogs who live in a nearby pond spring into action. They decide to save Minnie's Shabbat by making a new pot of soup while she is out a mitzvah from one neighbor to another. Together, the frogs work through the recipe, meeting every challenge with an amphibian solution: chopping carrots by playing leapfrog, using a long sticky tongue to pull a cookbook off a shelf, and giving each other a helping hop wherever they can.
With creativity and froggy flair, the cold-water chefs make the soup and save Minnie's dinner. Warm and whimsical, Matzo Frogs conveys an enduring message about the importance of mitzvot, community, and teamwork.
