Book Review: Lotsa Matzah by Tilda Balsley, Illustrated by Akemi Gutierrez

*****This review is meant for parents, teachers, and other people that work with children to read.*****

Lotsa Matzah is a short story about Matzah (unleavened bread), promoted for children ages 1-4. It starts out asking why matzah is plain and flat and a short explanation follows. It teaches children how matzah is used for the Passover and for the week after Passover. It also gives examples of what condiments people might put on matzah. 

I believe that this book will help motivate children whose families celebrate the Passover holiday. It describes what matzah is, why it is eaten for Passover and during the following week, and how to have fun eating it for a week. The illustrations made the matzah look yummy to me so I am wondering if children will also think it looks yummy.

This is a book that families most likely might want to keep around for the Passover holidays each year. I can picture that it also might be read to large or small groups of children during Passover celebrations at congregations and schools.

My rating = 5 out of 5 stars

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a free copy of this book from Kar-Ben Publishing. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
