The first twenty-four pages of this book tell the story of Passover, and nearly every page has a sidebar or two that contains either fun facts or extra info. Did the Israelites' slaves build the Pyramids? Which real, historic Pharaoh may have ordered the Israelite midwives to kill male babies? Possible answers are right here. And the illustrations are lovely, so that while the story can be read in other books, this one is unusual.

After the story comes the meat of the book: the activities. There are ten of these. The first one is the simplest: decorate a cover for a Haggadah, and make a bookmark. But why stop at one? Koffsky does not suggest this, but rather than have each child make his or her own, why not make covers for all the guests' books? While the adults are busy preparing for the Seder, the children can be kept busy and out of their way. The rest of the crafts may call for some adult supervision and/or participation.
