About the Book



This simple retelling of the story of Moses and the Exodus with colorful, folk art-style illustrations makes a lively introduction to the holiday for younger children.



Book Synopsis



On Passover, Jewish people all over the world celebrate their freedom from slavery and their beginnings as a great nation.

This simple introduction to the Passover story pairs an engaging retelling with bold illustrations, perfect for young readers.

One of the most significant holidays in Jewish tradition, Passover commemorates Moses leading his people out of slavery in Egypt. The Story of Passover recounts the major events of the story in dramatic but accessible language, from Jacob settling in Egypt to the miraculous parting of the Red Sea.

The text and images have been vetted for accuracy by a rabbinical authority, and the book includes an author's note about the modern Passover celebration, the seder, and how the different parts of the meal symbolize elements of the story.



Review Quotes
