Text: English, HebrewFrom School Library Journal:
Kindergarten-Grade 6This Haggadah makes the Passover Seder accessible to youngsters, regardless of their upbringing or educational background. After a brief introduction on how to use the book, Schecter jumps right in with a script to follow, from the night before the celebration until the end of the Seder. The book maintains an egalitarian standard without becoming didactic. God is never referred to as male, and both men and women are shown to have played large roles in the Exodus story. The traditional Four Sons have become the Four Children, and the recent tradition of Miriams Cup is included. The book ends with a list of ways in which youngsters can participate in the holiday celebration. Black-and-white paintings depict biblical characters and some of the items used during the meal. Unfortunately, half of the prayers are written in English only (the rest are in English, Hebrew, and transliteration). However, this is a small flaw in an otherwise excellent presentation.Yapha Nussbaum Mason, Brentwood Lower School, Los Angeles
