The Jewish holiday of Passover begins at sundown on Monday, April 2nd. If I lived in New York, I would corral Junior and skedaddle over to the Jewish Museum to make "playful Passover puppets" on April 5th. On the 8th, a professional puppeteer performs a story about a family's Passover preparations.
All of which has me thinking about children's books about the holiday. I went straight to the Association of Jewish Libraries for some recommendations. I found excellent annotated bibliographies (in PDF files) of "New and Recent Resources About Passover," as well as an update.
Now I'm well set with a list for the next trip to the library, where I'll also find the April issue of Cricket. Bruce Black, who blogs at Wordswimmer, has a Passover story in the magazine for 9 to 14 year olds. Congratulations, Bruce!
