I liked this book for many reasons. First I loved writing, the book told the story of Passover without including too much information, or making me feel overwhelmed as the reader. I also liked the text features. For example, on each page Sammy the spider always had something interesting to say in a thought bubble. The book also included songs, checklists, and even Hebrew text translations. The words were printed in various sizes, styles and colors which made each page very eye catching. The whole book included the story of Passover, while also explaining how it goes along with a Seder. I also enjoyed the illustrations because they were very bright and colorful, and some looked like they were made from tie dye water colors. The book’s overall theme is very meaningful since it talks about the Jewish holiday of Passover and its traditions. I feel that the story can help non-Jewish readers understand the different perspectives very easily. For instance, on each page there is a question and an answer, or interesting fact relating to a part of the Seder. One question asks, “Why do we only eat matzah on Passover?” and the answer says, “We only eat matzah because there wasn’t enough time to bake bread when we left Egypt.” This book shares the story of Passover, and its history in a fun and interesting way.
I feel that the overall idea of this book is too teach children about the history of Passover and why it is celebrated the way it is today. Since the Seder has so many different parts and sections, this book can help the reader understand each idea and why it is still important to talk about and celebrate it today. ( )
