A to Z, an alphabet Passover scene.
Find all the letters in between!
ABC Passover Hunt is a colorful, interactive, rhyming search for Passover foods, customs, and symbols.
"Tilda Balsley (ABC Hanukkah Hunt, Let My People Go, Oh No Jonah, and others) has created a holiday
hit with her new title. Instead of the typical, worn out 'A is for afikomen' text, Balsley has penned a
clever and humorous rhyming search for Passover customs, symbols and foods. There is real content
in this book that elevates it above most holiday picture books for the youngest readers. For example,
on the 'Land
of Israel' page, children are asked, 'At last the Jews had found their home,/How many
long years did they roam?' The answers range from 1 year to 10,000 years. The 'Nisan' page shows
a calendar and states, 'This is the month that Passover's in. On which day does it begin?' Answers
and a brief explanation of the holiday are on the last page. The illustrations are colorful, engaging, and
humorous, and digitally realized pictures integrate seamlessly with the rhyming text. Children and
caregivers will enjoy reading ABC Passover Hunt over and over." -- AJL Newsletter—Magazine
"Letters of the English alphabet are put to use introducing Passover concepts, such as matzah, wine, Egypt, fiery bush, and slavery, in this book for young listeners and readers. Each of these concepts then has a question asked about it for the reader to answer; every page has one item or topic represented in rhymes and illustrations. Interactive and full color searches take place for the story, foods, symbols, and customs of the holiday. Some of the pages show family members at the seder enjoying the celebration, while others show historical scenes from the Bible story and Haggadah. An example: The page entitled Red Sea has 'As Jews crossed the Red Sea on dry land, what was Moses holding in his hand?' accompanied by a representation of Moses in long flowing robe and sandals, holding both a staff and an umbrella. Humorous illustrations add to the text. The last page contains an informative paragraph about Passover and also the answer key to all the interactive questions. Jewish content abounds throughout.
Recommended for readers ages 4-8; particularly good for children in preschool and elementary school, who have had some instruction in and introduction to the details of the Passover story and Haggadah." -- Jewish Book Council—Website
