Category: Holiday

It's Passover at the Pinsky home. Before the seder, Mama tells a very important story to Elijah and Miriam-- how the Jewish people were led out of Egypt by Moses. But this year, Mama includes another part to the story: the part about Miriam, Moses's sister. It was Miriam who watched over her baby brother in the bulrushes, who led the women in song when crossing the Red Sea, and who kept the Israelites alive in the desert with water from her miraculous well. This beautifully illustrated, deeply spiritual book celebrates a beloved prophet and reminds us of the magic of holidays and remembrance.

Synopsis:

A Jewish mother preparing for Passover tells her young children the story of Miriam, the Hebrew girl who prophesied the birth of her brother, Moses. Full color.

Synopsis:

"In a feminist variation on the many stories told about Passover, Miriam, Moses's older sister, is the heroine. . . . Bright watercolor paintings lend drama to the story. The text is framed on a background resembling papyrus."--"Library Journal."
