Item description for The Story of Passover (Trophy Picture Books) by Norma Simon...

A Tale to Remember

Every spring, Jewish families throughout the world gather around their tables to celebrate Passover. With poems and prayers, with wine and food, they share the ancient story of the Hebrews in Egypt, and how Moses convinced Pharaoh to set his people free.

Jews celebrate Passover more than any other holiday, and this charming book explains why and how. You'll learn the story of the ten plagues and of the exodus from Egypt. Then you'll know why matzoh is eaten during the eight days of Passover and you'll understand the symbolism behind the Seder meal. Norma Simon has included three fun, hands-on activities, including a tasty recipe for matzoh ball soup.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Story of Passover (Trophy Picture Books)?

Straightforward  May 26, 2002
This 29-page story, originally published in 1965, provides a straightforward accounting of the Passover story, most appropriate for non-Jewish children who want to understand the celebration.

It explains the holiday that happens each spring, when Jewish people the world over celebrate their freedom from slavery with a Seder meal. Six pages are devoted to the Passover story itself--of how, more than 3,000 years ago, Egypt's ancient Pharaoh enslaved the Jewish, God brought ten plagues upon them and Moses led them forth to freedom and into the promised land.

Several pages are also devoted to how Passover is celebrated today.

The only weakness is that the text is dry. It doesn't convey the joy and spirit of this happy holiday. Alyssa A. Lappen
