Format: Hardcover
The setting is in the grandparent’s house. The young girl in this story recounts all of the things that she loves about Passover and the different things she eats with matzah. At the end of the holiday, she is tired of eating matzah. Like many observant Jews, she longs for the bread products that have been prohibited during Passover.

On the last day of Passover, the girl watches her grandfather make matzah brei. Everyone is delighted to eat this traditional food with his/her own topping. She would prefer not to eat anymore matzah. After each of the family members provides his/her explanation for why Jews should eat matzah during Passover, the girl humbly asks her grandfather to make more matzah brei. This time around they work together to create the food.

Each page has a delightful drawing by David Slonim that captures the sentiments of the characters. Leslea includes a lengthier explanation of Passover in the Author’s Note and also provides a glossary for the Hebrew and Yiddish terms that are used in the book.

Both of Lesléa's picture books tell a family orientated story that revolves around the celebration of Passover Jewish readers will be able to connect with the traditions and the Yiddish and Hebrew words. I couldn’t wait to make my version of matzah brei as soon as I finished the book. Non-Jewish readers will be introduced to Jewish customs and will learn additional information from the notes at the end. If you are looking for a family orientated Passover picture book, consider one or both of Leslea’s charming books.

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review and interview.

I'm Christian, but we always celebrated Passover as part of Easter week as a child. I was so happy to find this book. My kids and I love it. Brought back lots of memories. Glad I can educate them about other religions!
