Authentic and simple, this retelling of the Passover story in the Haggadah is designed to guide Passover participants through the Seder while educating them about the practice. Detailing the meaning of the ceremony in the past and present, the book also discusses the authenticity of the ceremony and the story, allowing those with little or no experience conducting a Seder to do so with confidence. A phonetic version of the Hebrew text is also included to aid those unfamiliar with Hebrew pronunciation.

About the Author:

Barry Louis Polisar has written numerous children’s books, poems, stories, and songs, including Noises from Under the Rug, Old Enough to Know Better, and Stolen Man. He travels throughout the United States and Europe as a visiting author in schools and libraries, and his songs and stories can be heard on radio and television. He lives in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Review:

"Explains each step in the Seder in simple language to provide a deeper understanding of the spiritual reason behind each practice. . . . Simple enough for older children to read and understand, it even comes with pre-stained wine drops on the pages about the ten plagues!"  —About Our Children, an insert in New Jersey/Rockland Media Group newspapers

"Polisar's narrative is clear and simple without being in any way patronizing to the broad age range likely to read or hear this Haggadah; the illustrations, supplied by Polisar's daughter, are vivid and exciting."  —Library Journal

"Polisar distills the Seder into easy-to-follow steps and gives historical background so we can . . . reconnect with the spiritual reasons that gave birth to our traditions."  —Hadassah Magazine

"Polisar's narrative is clear and simple in a way that is accessible to everyone."  —New Mexico Jewish Link

"Without abridging the elements of the Seder or diluting its message, Telling The Story . . . is truly a Haggadah a family can enjoy for many years."  —The Jewish Standard

"Seeks to re-imbue Passover rituals with relevency to people's lives. The beautiful paintings, created by his daughter, are mostly portraits done in rich, warm colors, full of feeling and with a flowing quality, mirroring the depth and movement of the Seder."  —The Jewish Advocate

"Polisar does a superb job at presenting the . . . concepts behind the practices in a clear and meaningful way, while still keeping his Haggadah relatively brief. Attractive and nicely designed, it features sensitive illustrations by Polisar's daughter."  —Jewish Woman Magazine

"A Haggadah that tells about holiday rituals in simple terms and presents the prayers in English and Hebrew with phonetic pronunciations."  —Detroit Jewish News
