Honestly, I knew very little about the celebration of Passover and the rituals and traditions that go along with it. But, through these short, poems, I learned a little bit about the week-long celebration. Steinberg is known for his children’s books that feature poems on the pages and stickers at the end of the book. He has written books about Christmas and Hanukkah, going to school, and other holidays such as Thanksgiving and Easter.

The poems include ones that explain the sacrifice of leaving behind all their favorite bread to only eat Matzoh instead. Another shares the meanings behind the items on a Seder plate and why those particular foods are eaten during Passover. There are also the funny poems that talk about adding more tables when more and more family arrives as well as the joy of having a wacky family.

Kids will find the fun of the poems whether they understand Passover or not. This isn’t just a book for those that celebrate Passover, but one that all of us can learn and understand a religious celebration that may be different from what you or I celebrate. Stickers at the end share illustrations from the pages of the book.

Best-selling author D.J. Steinberg may look like a grownup, but on the inside, he’s actually just an oversized kid who likes to write books about all the big and little moments of growing up.  He has published over 20 books including graphic novels, picture books, board books, and early readers.  You can find out more about his popular “Here I Come!” series of rhyming books for all occasions wherever books are sold, and you can check out more about D.J. by clicking, HERE.
