Book Review: Purim is Coming by Tracy Newman, Illustrated by Viviana Garofoli

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

A family is getting ready for Purim...they make cookies and fill baskets with that and other treats. When Purim starts the children dress up, parade around, and play a carnival game. Their family attends a congregation service while making noises with groggers and have a party!

This book shows that Purim can be fun not just for children but for adults too, with how they helped the children to make cookies, were involved in the congregation service, and were a part of the party. The Purim party seemed to have brought together many of the elements of how the family prepared for it: the cookies that were made were used, the children wore their costumes they dressed up in, and there were balloons like there were during the carnival game.

This is a fun book and another great Very First Board Book edition!

My review= 5 out of 5 stars!
