Synopsis: Lovely rhymes and wonderful images relate the Story of Purim to young children in a fun and enjoyable fashion. The holiday of Purim is celebrated every year in the month of Adar, four weeks before Passover. Purim is plural for the word Pur, which means "lot". It refers to wicked Haman's plot.  Haman, a high-ranking minister of the Persian King, drew lots to determine the best day to eliminate the Jewish people living in the Persian Empire during the days of King Achashverosh (Xerxes I, Fourth Century BCE). In addition to the story of Queen Esther, her uncle Mordechai and the fall of wicked Haman, the book also includes information about the traditional observances of Purim, which include hearing the Megillah read at the synagogue, charity to the poor, and much more.

[Author's Note: According to the Scroll of Esther, Mordechai was actually Esther's cousin rather than her uncle. However, as Morderchai adopted and raised young Esther upon the demise of her parents, The Purim Story assumes that the young Queen respectfully addressed her cousin as "Uncle Morderchai."]

Review: THE JEWISH BOOK COUNCIL
Review by Michal Hoschander Malen

Purim may be our most colorful holiday and it certainly lays a good claim to
being the most fun. That is why so many retellings of the story are filled with
colorful illustrations and told in sprightly rhyme. Sarah Mazor's version fits
that bill, too, but what gives this one a special twist is the section at the
end, which discusses the laws and customs of the holiday as these, too, are
taught in clever rhyme and are also accompanied by illustrations. The
story-in-rhyme is preceded by a slightly more serious prose explanation of the
holiday's history as well as a glossary.

Recommended for ages 3-8
