Jewish Values: A Sweet Passover
Number of Pages:
Miriam enjoys the traditional Seder at her grandparents’ home. Mostly Miriam adores matzo. Her craving leads to overeating it. She refuses to take another bite. By the eighth morning before Passover ends, she refuses her grandpa’s famous matzo brie. Her family tries to cajole and convince her. She and grandpa compromise in a warm ending. The well-developed plot will appeal across age levels; it delivers much basic holiday content for tots as well as moral insights for elementary readers. Everyone can side with Miriam while they absorb the lesson.
