Bold illustrations and lively language bring the Passover story to life in this childfriendly book. The poetry is fresh and easy to read. A reader’s theatre is cleverly integrated within the text. Dialogue is color coded, and easily adapted to a school or family setting. Humor is used throughout and the accompanying illustrations are graphic and reflect the comedic elements in the language. Although ideal for the younger set, all family members will enjoy acting out this version of the Passover Seder. Let My People Go brings Jewish history to life and belongs in every Jewish preschool and kindergarten class. Ages 4 – 8.
