About the Author:

Tracy Newman's writing inspiration comes from her adventures raising her children. This is the sixth book in Tracy's holiday board book series including Sukkot Is Coming!, Shabbat Is Coming!, Hanukkah is Coming!, Passover is Coming!, Purim Is Coming! and Rosh Hashanah is Coming!

Review:

"This playfully illustrated board book introduces some of the customs and rituals of the centerpiece of the Passover holiday: the Seder.

Passover will soon be here, and a three-generation family (and their dog) prepare for the traditional holiday. With dustpan and broom they clean every room. Grandfather and grandchild wet their hands and scoop up the meal that will make the matzo balls for the soup. Grandmother and grandchild prepare the Seder plate. Parsley, egg, bitter herbs, bone, greens, and charoset are all there. As the Seder begins, the children recite the traditional four questions they have learned. They dip, drink, and eat, and lean back in their seats. Now it is time to find the afikomen. The book ends back at the table: 'Our seder is great, / We all celebrate!' Following the same format used in Shabbat is Coming! (2014) and Hanukkah is Coming! (2015), Newman's rhyming couplets are followed on each page with the titular 'Passover is coming!' Unfortunately though, that only works for the first half of the book; for the second half, 'Passover is here!' would have been more appropriate. Also, there is a disconnect between text and illustration on the four-questions page, as the text has the children learning, but the illustration has them at the Seder reciting the questions.

A sweet introduction in spite of its incongruities." -- Kirkus Reviews

(Journal)

"As with its predecessors, Shabbat is Coming! (2014) and Hanukkah is Coming! (2015), simple, rhyming text and repetitive language make this board book an age-appropriate introduction to Passover. The child-friendly illustrations of a contemporary, multi-generational family preparing for Passover complement the text. They set out the matzah, clean the house (though most people clean before putting the matzah on the table!), make matzah ball soup, prepare the Seder plate, and learn the Four Questions. Teachers and families will enjoy sharing this book with toddlers." -- AJL Reviews

(Magazine)

"In Newman and Garofoli's third board book highlighting a Jewish celebration, following Shabbat Is Coming! and Hanukkah Is Coming!, the book's title becomes a refrain as a family prepares for Passover seder. 'We wet hands and scoop,/ Making matzah ball soup,/ Passover is coming,' writes Newman as a boy and an older relative, presumably his grandfather, work together. As in the previous books, Garofoli does a fine job of capturing the family's closeness as they clean, discuss the Four Questions, hunt for the afikomen, eat together, and more. Well-crafted rhymes and cozy illustrations make this a solid choice for pre-Passover reading." -- Publisher's Weekly
