A Passover Story
by Laurel Snyder and Catia Chien
Here's a picture book for all Jewish families to read while celebrating Passover. Unlike other Passover picture books that focus on the contemporary celebration of the holiday, this gorgeous picture book in verse follows the actual story of the Exodus. The story is told through the eyes of a young slave girl. Authors Laurel Snyder and illustrator Catia Chien skillfully and gently depict the story of Pharoah, Moses, the 10 plagues and the parting of the Red Sea in a remarkably accessible way.
"Evocative and beautiful... flawlessly evokes the spirit of the Old Testament story," raves Publishers Weekly in a starred review. This dramatic adventure, set over 3,500 years ago, of a family that endures hardships and ultimately finds freedom, is the perfect tool to help young children discover the origins of the Passover traditions.
