As the celebration of Passover nears, parents, relatives, and friends are preparing to teach children about the Jewish tradition.
Counting on our readers’ collective knowledge of books, GalleyCat Reviews regularly features curated book lists from Flashlight Worthy Book Recommendations. Today’s list is timely: The Best Passover Fiction for Children.
Over the last year, Flashlight Worthy Book Recommendations has created more than 300 lists–giving reading advice on everything from book club books to the best children’s books. Working with this carefully curated publication, we will share our favorite lists with GalleyCat readers. Add your suggestions in the comments section.
The complete list (created by Linda Silver) follows after the jump. Here’s more about the Passover List: “The exodus from Egypt, the Civil War, the Depression, and contemporary seders with a divorced mom and dad are some of the settings for this plateful of well-told, splendidly illustrated Passover stories. And as in so many children’s books, animals as well as humans take center stage with Chicken Little, Sammy Spider, and a talking horse all helping to celebrate the holiday.” (NOTE: This is a special encore posting of this literary list)
