A family's Passover celebration is equal parts warmth and charm in this cozy picture book, with the traditional seder song Dayenu as the grateful refrain.
In this story told in spare, lyrical prose, a Jewish family prepares for their Passover seder, visiting the farmer's market for walnuts, lilacs, and honey (and adopting a kitten along the way ), then chopping apples for the charoset, and getting dressed up before walking to Nana's house. The refrain throughout is Dayenu a mind-set of thankfulness, a reminder to be aware of the blessings in each moment. At Nana's, there's matzo ball soup, chicken, coconut macaroons, and of course, the hidden afikomen. After opening the door for Elijah and singingthe verses of Chad Gadya, Nana tucks the children in for a special Passover sleepover.
This warm, affectionate story embraces Passover in the spirit of "dayenu," and offers a comprehensive glossary it s a perfect read for the entire family in anticipation and celebration of the holiday."
