Publisher's Weekly Review

A companion to It's Challah Time! and It's Sukkah Time!, It's Seder Time! by Latifa Berry Kropf, photos by Tod Cohen, uses large photos to follow along as a preschool class makes matzoh and charoset, conducts a seder and acts out the story of Passover. Endnotes explain the traditional rituals as well as some modern innovations (e.g., setting out a cup of water on the seder table to honor Miriam, Moses's sister). (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-K-Kropf follows a preschool class through the preparation of a traditional meal to a reenactment of the story of Passover to the songs that conclude the classroom festivities. Each page in the small-format book includes a full-color photo and line or two of large-print text. One page shows two girls cutting apples and nuts for the charoset using plastic knives. A note for adults discusses the holiday and the symbolism of traditional foods. There are also instructions for making a Torah mask. There are lots of books on this holiday for young children including Claire Lister's My First Passover Board Book (DK, 2002), Emily Sper's The Passover Seder (Scholastic, 2003), Johnny Zucker's Four Special Questions (Barron's, 2003), and Tanya Lee Stone's P Is for Passover (Penguin, 2003).
