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.show more
