"Great Uncle Harry is terrible at hiding the afikomen. All the kids anticipate his usual hiding places, and so the search isn’t very fun. But young Rachel hatches a clever plan and offers him the option to let her hide the matzo this year. She then creates a family scavenger hunt containing a variety of rhyming clues. With each solved riddle, the other children get a part of a puzzle that, when pieced together, contains the biggest clue about where the afikomen is hidden. Information regarding the symbols on the seder plate is included within the clues, and even Uncle Harry is in on the merriment by the end. A fun game that could become a future family tradition."--Jewish Journal(Magazine)
"Rachel’s Great-Uncle Harry usually hides the afikomen ― a piece of matzah broken in half and placed in a napkin, then hidden for kids to find ― at her family’s Passover Seder. But this year, she decides she will hide it. She adds a twist ― a scavenger hunt. Each of the clues she creates contains a riddle relating to the holiday; when each riddle is solved, she hands out a puzzle piece. The first clue reads 'Karpas is parsley, fresh and green./Find Clue Number Two/Where green is the scene.' Her relatives search for the clues, until they find the sixth one and can assemble the puzzle pieces, which form a Seder plate. Images of a close-knit extended family, with smiling youngsters and playful adult-child interactions, impart a joyous atmosphere."--The Washington Post(Newspaper)
"Silva makes her children’s book debut with the warmhearted story of a family’s Passover seder, during which one of the young cousins, Rachel, gets fed up with how bad her Great-Uncle Harry is at hiding the afikomen. Taking the initiative, Rachel organizes a scavenger hunt for her cousins, featuring rhyming clues built around the ingredients on a seder plate ('The shankbone reminds us/ of when the Jews fled./ Find Clue Number Four/ Where Frank rests his head'). Sakamoto’s (Let’s Build) genial cartoons send Rachel and her cousins all over Great-Uncle Harry’s house, quietly emphasizing the closeness among the older and younger members of the family. It’s a no-stress, no-conflict portrait of a Passover celebration that emphasizes ingenuity and the creation of new traditions to accompany the old."--Publishers Weekly(Journal)
"Enjoy a new way to hide and hunt for the afikoman at the Passover Seder.Traditions are an integral part of every family Passover Seder, but for Rachel the hunt for the afikoman has gotten boring. Her great-uncle Harry, who leads the Seder, uses the same three hiding places, and the children know exactly where to look. (The afikoman, the middle board of matzo, is usually hidden by the adult conducting the Seder, found by the children after an adventurous hunt, and redeemed for a present.) Rachel decides that this year she will hold a scavenger hunt to add to the fun. She assembles her art supplies and hands out the first clue, a piece from a jigsaw puzzle. This clue, written in verse, provides a hint to where to find the following clue and is also a reference to a food on the Seder plate. There's some confusion, much laughter, and finally success as the puzzle is assembled: it's a Seder plate, and the missing matzo is uncovered underneath the actual Seder plate on the table. Silva's story is humorous, and children familiar with the holiday will enjoy solving the clues. Sakamoto's people are round-faced and white, with cartoon eyes, blush-red cheeks, and big smiles. This may help families develop a new and fun-filled addition to their Seder traditions."--Kirkus Reviews(Journal)
