Book Overview

A classic tale gets a Jewish twist, when Little Red Hen asks her friends for help making Passover matzah.

Before she knows it, Little Red Hen tells herself, it will be time for Passover. So she decides to plant some grain. But when she asks her friends to help, they're too busy for her. Sorry, bub, says the Horse. Think again, barks the dog.

Oy gevalt Friends, shmends, she says. I'll just do it myself.

But when the wheat is grown and harvested, when the flour is milled and the matzah baked and the Seder table set-- all by Red on her own--who should come to her door but her not-so-helpful friends? Though she's tempted to turn them away, Little Red is a mensch-- and a mensch forgives.

Like her Haggadah says: Let all who are hungry come and eat. But who will do all these dishes?

Filled with Yiddish phrases and a healthy dose of humor, this Passover tale of hard work, friendship, and forgiveness is not to be missed. Bright cartoon illustrations add humor and detail to the story.

Backmatter includes a glossary of Yiddish phrases, an author's note about the holiday, and a recipe for making your own Passover matzah.

   Matzah-Seeds to table via a wise, hard working "Little Red Hen".
Beautiful book to read and share with children. It is just plain fun for Passover, whether a child is reading it themselves or being read to them. The book's Little Red Hen guides the reader through the process of collecting the wheat seeds, harvesting and milling the wheat and making the flour into Matzah. The story continues the process of preparing for the holiday and its observance. Fun farm animals assume characters that are part of the barn home of Red Hen. The illustrations are enticing for young eyes. At the end of the book there is an explanation of the Passover holiday in child-comprehensible terms and also a short glossary of terms related to the holiday. The book has just the right elements and length to allow little ones to enjoy hearing themselves read and for a reader to enjoy entertaining and educating. For the price, a great children's book and a beautiful addition to a home library.
   A New Classic Jewish Children's Book
This is one of the best children's books ever written! The retelling of the old folk tale with a surprise ending is engaged and endearing for adults and children. If you are going to a Seder where great children will be present, bring this book to read - a young Pesach gift for everyone.
   True family book
It is particularly good for demonstrating Passover's sharing values. Truly, a book for the whole family to enjoy.
   Good book. Poor condition.
Had a rip on a page that was poorly fixed with duct tape. And the binding and cover were bent from the packaging.
   This is a wonderful story that conveys an even better message.
This is a beautiful story with an important message for everyone! This story can help children understand that the world is a big place filled with many different ways to celebrate special events.
   Our 2. 5 year old LOVES this book. ...
It is equally enjoyable to read it to the adult with a few Yiddish words thrown in. We're atheists just trying to bring some balance to our little one who attends Catholic school.
