Book Review: Seder in the Desert by Jamie Korngold, Photos by Jeff Finkelstein

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

A group of families travel through a desert to find a spot to have a Passover seder in Moav, Utah. Along the way they travel through sandy washes, over rocks, and up sandstone that is slanted. They carry a Torah and other supplies in backpacks. They set up their plates and other dinner items for an unforgettable Passover dinner. When the dinner is over, they have a special way of closing out Passover.

It was really interesting to read about this large group of people who traveled through the desert to find a special place to celebrate Passover. People from what looked like many families came together to hear the story of the Exodus. I really liked seeing that the children had their own specialized haggadahs to read from and that the symbols on the seder table were explained so the children who read this book will have a better understanding of what they represent for the Passover meal.

Marketed for ages Ages 3-8, Grades PreK-2

My review = 5 out of 5 stars
