As a family remembers when Hebrew slaves were freed from Egypt a long time ago, a young boy participates in an age-old Passover tradition. Lift the flaps to discover why certain foods are eaten and why certain questions are asked in this celebration of freedom for the Hebrew people.
A joyous family Seder is at the heart of Passover Is Here! by Bobby Pearlman, illus. by Christel Desmoinaux, an unusually informative lift-the-flap title. A boy explains the preparations, food and religious traditions as his cheery clan gathers. "Flashback" illustrations of Moses, the Pharaoh and other key elements add some depth here. Kids will enjoy lifting the flaps to learn more about the holiday's history and to playfully advance the action in the story. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
