In her third board book, Camille Kress continues on a voyage through the Jewish calendar. Purim! introduces toddlers and preschoolers to the festive holiday's symbols and celebration. The sweet smells of hamantashen, the click-clack sounding of the graggers, and the mystery of the masquerade -- all come to life on the pages of this charming board book.

PreS-Soft illustrations with quiltlike borders depict children acting out the story of Purim, from a yarn-bearded Haman to a bathrobed king. The brief text relates the spirit of this holiday rather than the facts, assuming an audience of preschoolers who already know the tale. Rita Golden Gelman's Queen Esther Saves Her People (Scholastic, 1998) provides a more detailed retelling of the events associated with Purim. Kress's board book will find a place in synagogue preschools and libraries serving families requesting more books on the Jewish holidays.-Martha Link, Louisville Free Public Library, KY
