Weekly Book Special: March 22nd-28th
Next Monday is the Jewish High Holiday and festival of Passover, commemorating the Hebrews’ escape from enslavement in Egypt. Our book special this week is:
Passover Seder: Touch, Turn, Open and Learn!
by Emily Sper (Hardcover no dustjacket, 20 pages, 2003, $10.00)
“Clever paper engineering turns ‘The Passover Seder’ by Emily Sper into interactive educational fun,” writes Publisher’s Weekly.
“Kids can rotate a seder plate laden with bitter herb, charoset, etc., to match each item with its English and Hebrew names (transliteration provided); pull a tab to ‘spill’ a drop of wine for each of the 10 plagues and look behind flaps to find the afikoman. “The text outlines the steps of a seder and adds bonus facts. Bold yet polished graphics ensure a strong visual appeal.”
“[This is] a great book for beginners,” writes Kyra Anderson of This Mom blog on family and wellness. “We had our very first home Passover seder last night…it was a tremendous success!”
The North American Montessori Center also lists this book under “suggested reading” about Passover.
