"Polak presents a highly accessible introduction to aspects of the Passover seder in this holiday board book…It's a warm and intimate look at Passover for the youngest of celebrants."

"The small board book size will please both grandparents, parents and children who will turn these pages often as they remember their loving family events and look forward for those to come. Highly Recommended."
