Product description

"My family and I thoroughly enjoyed your Passover Zoo Seder and even 'Ma-Roared' a few times."--Senator Joseph Lieberman"A delicious blend of fantasy and fact--flavored with tsimmes."--Eli Wallach, actorThere's mayhem at the zoo this year. Passover is coming, but the zoo animals cannot find a Haggadah that isn't too worn to read. Thankfully, Shai Elephant remembers the Exodus story and assigns lines to each animal. Every creature is eager to baah, laugh, whinney, and or bray its part. Everyone has a role - -from the lion's great big "Ma-Roar!" to help from the vultures to finish off the meal. Written to be read aloud, this fanciful, rhyming romp through the Pesach tradition is filled with tongue twisters, alliteration, and onomatopoeia. Italicized portions of the text are intended to be sung with their respective Passover cantillations. An extensive glossary, word search, and crossword puzzle complete the celebration.

"My family and I thoroughly enjoyed your Passover Zoo Seder and even 'Ma-Roared' a few times."--Senator Joseph Lieberman"A delicious blend of fantasy and fact--flavored with tsimmes."--Eli Wallach, actor"Excellent!"--Steve Guttenberg, actor"Very cute!"--Senator Barbara Boxer"Charming."--Marilyn Michaels, comedienne The time for Passover is coming, but the zoo animals are worried. How will they celebrate when their Haggadahs are too worn to read?Thankfully, Shai Elephant remembers each and every bit of the Exodus story and assigns lines to all of the animals in the zoo. Beaded Bea Bee, Perky Parakeet, and Velvel Virus are all eager to buzz, chirp, and wheeze their parts. Everyone plays a role in the celebration-even the vultures help by finishing off the leftovers.Written to be read aloud, these fanciful and funny Passover couplets employ whimsical wordplay and invite children and their families to share a tongue twister, chant the Dah-yaynoo with Horsey and Donkey, steal the afikoman with Chief Bobby the Baboon, and end the meal with Lion's Ma-Roar.A glossary offers lighthearted definitions of the Passover terms used in the book, and a word search and crossword puzzle complete the fun.
