The Story of Passover

(Board Book)

By Francis Barry Silberg
For thousands of years, Jews have gathered during Passover to celebrate God's love and protection. This boardbook explains this ancient event in a manner so simple that even the youngest child will understand its historical significance.

Description from Publisher

This board book gives a bare-bones description of the story behind the holiday of Passover. The narration is very simple and appropriate to explain the holiday to toddlers.

Lori's Description

Magician's Visit:
A Passover Tale

By Barbara Diamond Goldin
Goldin (Just Enough Is Plenty) adapts another story about the prophet Elijah visiting a needy, but still charitable, family and providing their Passover feast. The subtly expressive pen-and-watercolor illustration style, with its large-eyed, solemn- faced figures, is unmistakably Parker's (DeFelice's The Dancing Skeleton, 1989; Preston's Popcorn and Ma Goodness, Caldecott Honor, 1967, o.p.). His palette here is particularly lovely--russet, purple, brown, gray-blue. A fine addition to any collection of traditional Jewish tales, with a final note about Passover, Elijah, and Peretz.

Description from Kirkus Reviews

Adapting a story by I.L. Peretz, Golden tells the tale of a fantastical stranger, a wondrous magician who appears in the marketplace on a busy day before Passover, and changes the lives of a poor, but faithful couple. Hand-colored etchings throughout.

Baby Moses

(Step into Reading Books Series)
The story of how baby Moses was hidden in a basket of bulrushes and sent floating down the river to protect him from the cruel Pharaoh is retold for beginning readers. The book is physically attractive; there is an appealing and appropriate balance between the illustrations and the text. The full-color watercolor drawings convey a sense of the exotic Egyptian setting. The story is well told within the confines of an extremely limited vocabulary. "Was the baby safe?'' asks the narrator. " `Not yet,' '' answer the snakes, the hippos, and the crocodiles; thus providing a touch of whimsy and humor. The presentation of a Bible story in beginning-to-read format is relatively unique, and this one is sufficiently well done to provide an interesting reading experience.

Learning About Passover

By Barbara Soloff Levy
The meaning of Passover and its place in Jewish culture is explained in this instructive little book. Twelve pages of easy-to-read text and colorful sticker illustrations acquaint youngsters with the Egyptian Pharaoh who held the Hebrews captive, Moses' role in leading his people safely to Israel, and the celebration that commemorates this historical event, including the Seder dinner and foods representing the Passover story.

Moses :
Retold from the Bible
Fisher's version of the biblical story of Moses and the Exodus from Egypt suggests a great staged pageant, with richly colored paintings in the artist's signature style. Each double-page spread captures a mythic drama, with the Old Testament figures bold against mountain, desert, and sky, from the hiding of the baby in the bulrushes to the coming of the plagues, the parting of the waters, the wandering in the desert, and the receiving of the Ten Commandments. In one powerful close-up, Moses is horrified to see an Egyptian slave-master beating an Israelite. In another scene, G-d shows his power to Moses in the flames of the burning bush. The text is longer than usual for Fisher, and he combines biblical style and God's thundering cadence ("let My people go!" ) with a plain, sometimes colloquial, telling ("I have made a terrible mistake," Pharaoh says). Of course, this is the Passover story, but it's also the story of the oppressed everywhere and their struggle to be "free at last."

Description from Booklist

The story is familiar, but Fisher's ability with words is matched only by his ability to create pictures. When Moses' mother hides him in the bulrushes, the dark scares the reader as much as it does Miriam, who is watching the baby. The Egyptian princess and her ladies are relieved to find an Israelite woman to nurse the foundling Moses. Their relief shows in their faces. Thunder, lightning, the Red Sea parting for the fleeing Israelites-Fisher is fantastic. A good addition to any home or school library and of particular interest to those who have just learned the story and who can relate it to Passover and the Ten Commandments.
