Pearl's Passover: A Family Celebration through Stories, Recipes, Crafts, and Songs Hardcover – January 1, 2002

From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3--A large family, neighbors, and a rabbi (all portrayed in loving domestic detail as sheep) play a role in the stories, recipes, crafts, and songs featured here. Zalben individualizes her characters through humorous touches that make the rather large cast easy to distinguish. The colored-pencil and watercolor illustrations of the vignettes are charming, and those that accompany the clear directions given for crafts and cooking are both helpful and inviting. Children will enjoy reading about Pearl and Avi and their twin cousins, Sophie and Harry ("the two terrors from Teaneck"); adults will appreciate the way that essential information about the history, meaning, and customs of Passover is interwoven throughout the stories and activities. Similar to Pearl's Eight Days of Chanukah (S & S, 1998), this book will be welcome in religious and secular libraries.
