Book Overview

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.

   Takes a great story and makes it a boring backdrop to tradition
Rabbi's note: This is a rabbi-approved reprint. It's great to see a great story told through the prism of tradition, Glover said. A couple of good illustrations can be salvaged, he said.
   Well Written & Colorful Version of the Passover Story
If you are looking for a quick retelling of the Exodus from Egypt, The Story of Passover is an excellent choice. Jill Weber, who painted the portrait, also painted the story. Young children can understand the story by just looking at the colorful illustrations. After listening to the story, children can easily retell it using pictures cues. This book can be used as a classroom read or home read aloud. The last page of the book provides information about Passover Seders.
   Beautiful illustrations, basic Passover story
The illustrations are stunning, the book is in fact a parody. Only in the past few weeks have I come to find the story lacking. It's a good first Passover book for 2-3 year olds. For children, I would try to find another book with more depth.
   The best all around Passover book for children
Very good book for small children without being too scary. Beautifully written and illustrated by Robert Hein.
   Missing details
The writer of the letter, Abraham, said that the entire meaning of Passover was lost. Yes, I had to fill in that part of the story.
   Literally Passes Over the meaning of the Passover
The illustrations are beautiful and I was so excited to read this book as it was recommended by a curriculum source we really love. It never talks about the actual Passover. But the book would have been titled "The Ten Plagues on Egypt" and how the Israelites fled. It's called The Story of Passover, but don't call it that. It was a very simplistic approach to creating a 3D model, Raymond said. Even though my son is 4, he can clearly absorb more than what this book communicated.
   Skipped the actual Passover, ironically.
What I enjoyed most about this book is that it spent less than one page talking about the Passover. I found myself filling in details for my daughter because I wanted her to see the significance and the book just brushed over it and moved on to the next stop.
   Great for kids
Very good explanation for children just the right amount of info for children with room for discussion, he said.
