The Carp in the Bathtub

By Barbara Cohen
This heartwarming story tells the tale of two children determined to save a carp from its fate as the Passover gefilte fish. Mama is a wonderful cook and makes the best gefilte fish in New York City. But her two children wouldn't know that firsthand. Every Rosh Hashanah and Passover, Mama buys a live carp and lets it swim in their bathtub for a week until it is time for her to prepare the gefilte fish. Invariably, the children love to watch their new pet and are dismayed when it is time for their pet to leave. One year, they became especially fond of the carp in the bathtum (whom they named "Joe" after Mrs. Ginzburg's late husband), so they hatch a plot to save Joe from the dinner plate. Although this story is told by a grandmother reminiscing about her childhood, young readers will be engrossed in the narrative due to its realistic conversation and conclusion. The descriptions of life during the Depression will bring children back to a simpler time. A warning for parents, however: Mama ends up killing the carp in the end. Fish-loving or overly-sensitive children may want to skip this tale. Overall, a unique Passover tale.

A Wilderness Passover

By Kathleen Cook Waldron

Louie and Susan are excited about spending their first Passover in their new mountain home. But they don't have any of the right foods. "How can we have a Seder with just four people?" asks their mother. Her imaginative children aren't about to give up. Together they cook up a little Seder magic.

Description from Publisher

A Wilderness Passover is an excellent tool for teaching all children about the Jewish tradition of Passover. This touching story is about a family who leaves the city to live in the mountains.

The mother of Louie and Susan becomes depressed over the fact that there will be only four members of the family at the Seder meal. She is also concerned about the poor ration of food that the family will have to celebrate this joyous event. The children and the father try their best to encourage the mother, but to little avail. The children then come up with a plan, which involves the generosity of neighbours.

The back of the book offers a detailed description of the importance of certain food for the Passover as well as the history behind the Jewish celebration. This was an excellent addition to the story. The illustrations are warm and capture the emotions experienced by the family.

Seder with the Animals

By Howard and Mary K. Bogot

Description from Publisher


By Miriam Chaikin
Chaikin's dignified text and Mikolaycak's magnificent bold illustrations make this a treasure for all ages and religions. Exodus relates the stories of Moses, the ten plagues, and the wanderings of the Israelites in the desert until the Ten Commandments are received. The language flows smoothly and is accessible to young readers. The text and the use of white space are masterfully incorporated into the design of each page. Each sweeping double-page spread is framed in a rust earth tone, bringing to mind a desert setting, with the illustrations extending beyond the borders, giving a larger-than-life flow to each scene. Golden highlights predominate in the detailed mosaics and jeweled patterns in the Egyptian scenes and as the flames symbolizing G-d in the desert. Appended is a map of "the probable route of the Exodus" and the names and symbols of the 12 tribes of Israel.

The Prince of Egypt (DVD)

The Prince of Egypt (VHS)
Nearly every biblical film is ambitious, creating pictures to go with some of the most famous and sacred stories in the Western world. DreamWorks' first animated film was the vision of executive producer Jeffrey Katzenberg, a key architect in the Disney studio's rebirth (The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, etc.).

Here is an Egypt alive with energetic bustle and pristine buildings. Born a slave and set adrift in the river, Moses (voiced by Val Kilmer) is raised as the son of Pharaoh Seti (Patrick Stewart) and is a fitting rival for his stepbrother Rameses (Ralph Fiennes). When he learns of his roots--in a knockout sequence in which hieroglyphics come alive--he flees to the desert, where he finds his roots and heeds G-d's calling to free the slaves from Egypt.
