Matzah Ball :
A Passover Story

By Mindy Avra Portnoy
Aaron must bring a bag lunch to the baseball game during Passover, but while his friends are off at the concession stand, something wonderful happens.

Description from Publisher

Blending baseball and Passover facts, this contemporary, fast-paced story demonstrates that "It's not always easy being Jewish, but sometimes it can lead to miracles." Aaron's happiness at going with his friends to see the Baltimore Orioles is tempered by his mother's reminder that it is Passover and that he can't eat pretzels, crackerjacks, or ice cream. His non-Jewish friends eagerly devour his special lunch, which he refuses to eat. Aaron dislikes being different, especially when the others make one last trip to the concession stands. Surprised when an elderly man (could it be Elijah?) sits down beside him, Aaron listens to the man's memories of Jewish baseball fans going to games at Ebbets Field and receives a special piece of matzah that miraculously helps him catch a home-run ball hit into the bleachers. Bold, detailed watercolors perfectly complement the text's realistic language and emotions. This will be a hit with sports lovers and anyone seeking an added dimension to a holiday story

One Little Goat - Had Gadya
This traditional Jewish song, sung during the Passover Seder, is cumulative, much like he House That Jack Built.

After a little goat is eaten by a cat, troubles escalate until the Holy One puts things right. The song is sung at the end of the seder on Passover.


By Brian Wildsmith
This is the story of how one man led his people out of slavery to a land that G-d had promised to give them. His name was Moses.

With vivid, richly detailed illustrations, Brian Wildsmith captures all the major events of one of the greatest stories in the Bible. The story of the Exodus and the rescue of the Hebrews from slavery in Egypt is a powerful and exciting tale which attests that G-dís guiding hand is always evident.

In Wildsmithís hands, this familiar journey comes alive against stunning backdrops -- from the great palaces of ancient Egypt, to the vast expanses of Sinaiís mountains and wilderness, to the peaceful place G-dís people can finally call home.

A Passover Cookbook for Kids (1st Edition)

By Judy Tabs and Barbara Steinberg

A recipe for matzah cautions that home-baked matzah is not always considered Kosher. Many of the recipes are appropriate for making throughout the year. There is also a section of international meals: matzah pizza, tostados, matzah egg foo young. Line drawings add a humorous note, and the pun of the title and the cover design are added chuckles.

The Complete Story of Passover

Passover As I Remember It

By Toby Knobel Fluek

This nostalgic portrait takes readers back 60 years to see how one family living in a tiny Polish village celebrated the Jewish holiday of Passover. With her daughter as coauthor, Fluek evokes memories that have remained with her since childhood--her father in his long black holiday coat, her mother making ceremonial wine from raisins, the kashering (cleaning) of silverware for Passover use ... The artwork itself, however, is sturdy and unpretentious, perfectly reflecting the simple way of life described, and the heartfelt text reveals some truly fascinating traditions. Perhaps more meaningful for its intriguing view of a life gone by than as an introduction to the springtime Passover festival, this is, nonetheless, a book that leaves an indelible image.

Miriam's Gift
(Prince of Egypt)
Moses' courageous and spirited sister Miriam is the heroine of this picture book retelling. The story and keepsake charm pay tribute to Miriam's gift of faith and her belief that one day her brother would help set their people free. The book tells Moses' story from Miriam's point of view as she anxiously follows his basket down the Nile and then waits hopefully for his eventual return. The beautiful bronze pendant of baby Moses in the basket is a symbol of her devotion, and it provides readers with an opportunity to role-play Miriam, as well as Moses' mother, Yocheved, and the Queen. A journal space at the end of the book invites readers to record their own promises to family and friends. Brave and loyal Miriam will appeal to all children, but especially girls. By wearing the keepsake charm and necklace, readers will be reminded each day of Miriam's powerful story and its valuable message of courage.

The Magician's Visit:
A Passover Tale
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.
