"This is a good resource to teach young children about Passover. The font is nice and large and there are many clear photos of different people celebrating all over the world. Readers should be aware that the book assumes its readers are Jewish (e.g., "We celebrate . . .", "we remember. . .") I found this a bit off-putting as I was reading it to my non-Jewish children who were curious about Passover. I also wish the history was told first, followed by the traditions surrounding it. For instance, the author mentions the plagues on page 4, but then doesn't explain them until page 18. Finally, while there is a pronunciation guide at the back of the book, I wish there had been one in parentheses as each word was first used. " said.

" This book was a little bit long for me, but Mommy was able to make it through the whole thing several times before night-night. It shows how different people all over the world celebrate Passover. Some of it is nothing like how my family celebrates, but it gives a good idea of what the holiday is all about. " said.

"Okay, finally one I really liked. (Shh, I know I have a non-fiction bias.) Simply written, good for lower elementary grade readers, and lots of pictures that portray a diverse picture of Judaism - not limited to the US, eastern Europe, and Israel, but including communities in Yemen, Uganda, and China.

There's a denser section at the end, good for older children looking for a simple resource for research, a glossary, a simple recipe, a bibliography, and an explanation of the seder that might help an adult not used to Jewish custom.

" Celebrate Passover with Matzah Maror, and memories did a great job in telling us why Passover is celebrated. The pictures helped tell the story were essential to the story.What we learned~why Hametz is not eaten~why families search for Hametz before Passover starts~why families in certain areas burn Hametz the morning before the first Passover~what Seder isI recommend Celebrate Passover with Matzah Maror, and memories to everyone. " said.

"I didn't know the specifics of the Jewish Passover, so I had a fun time learning about it. I loved how the pictures showed Jewish families celebrating all over the world. The back gives a brief summary of all the facts and a Passover Toffee recipe.

I love learning about different holidays and religions. It's beautiful to see families celebrating their beliefs with love and faith, regardless of what they believe or what religion they adhere too.

I've only read three books in the Holiday Around the World series, but I think it's a brilliant idea and niceley done.
