Paperback series expand to cover the spring holidays. The Festival Time! series introduces Four Special Questions: A Passover Story and It's Party Time: A Purim Story, both by Jonny Zucker, illus. by Jan Barger Cohen. In each, cheery watercolors and a first-person narrative demonstrate how a child's family participates in the customary rituals, focusing on the most festive aspects (""Dad hides the Afikoman-a special half piece of matzoh-and we all search for it. I find it first, but we all get a present!""). Endnotes explain the religious and historical significance of each holiday.
