9780060270629: The Story of Passover

A Tale to Remember

Every spring, Jewish families throughout the world gather around their tables to celebrate Passover. With poems and prayers, with wine and food, they share the ancient story of the Hebrews in Egypt, and how Moses convinced Pharaoh to set his people free.Jews celebrate Passover more than any other holiday, and this charming book explains why and how. You’ll learn the story of the ten plagues and of the exodus from Egypt. Then you’ll know why matzoh is eaten during the eight days of Passover and you’ll understand the symbolism behind the Seder meal. Norma Simon has included three fun, hands-on activities, including a tasty recipe for matzoh ball soup.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4. A welcome reissue of Simon's Passover (Crowell, 1965; o.p.) with a text quite similar to the original in terms of organization, but with phraseology changes that provide for a smoother, less abrupt flow, and new illustrations. A major change from the original is the substitution of more gender neutral forms within the context of the celebration. In some cases, references to men and women and their traditional roles are omitted or changed to "people." Other pleasant additions include recipes for making the symbolic charoseth and matzoh balls and instructions for making place cards for the Seder table. The discussion of the Samaritan Passover celebration in Jordan has been omitted. Weihs's oil-on-gesso illustrations are attractive and effective. The artist's characters sport soft yet angular features with rounded faces hosting deep set and penetrating eyes. This title bridges the gap between the more simplistic treatments found in Miriam Nerlove's Passover (Whitman, 1989) and Marilyn Hirsh's I Love Passover (Holiday, 1988; o.p.); David Adler's A Picture Book of Passover (Holiday, 1982; o.p.) provides more of a historic description and less about the celebration itself. Biblically accurate and factual, Simon's book brings the Passover celebration to life for both Jewish and Gentile children.?Celia A. Huffman, Worthington Public Library, OH
