My First Passover Board Book

. DK Publishing (Dorling Kindersley), $6.99 (36pp) ISBN 978-0-7894-8452-9

Like other entries in the publisher's My First series, DK's My First Passover Board Book uses photographs and mostly self-contained spreads to introduce core ideas and concepts. Costumed children, for example, mime the roles of Moses, Pharaoh and the fleeing Jews, and a box of matzoh meal illustrates the notion of ""special Kosher for Passover food."" Explanations may seem a bit dumbed-down, as in the identification of the sixth plague as ""nasty illness"" (depicted with a head shot of a boy with red spots drawn on his face). (Jan.)
