“Wayland employs flowing, descriptive language…
Kath’s fresh, perky watercolors perfectly match the joyous tone of the text…
A delightful, modern take on an ancient tradition.” ~ ¬†Kirkus

This warm, affectionate story embraces Passover in the spirit of “dayenu”
(a mind-set of thankfulness, a reminder to be aware of the blessings in each moment.)

In this story told in spare, lyrical prose, a Jewish family prepares for their Passover seder, visiting the farmer‚Äôs market for walnuts, lilacs, and honey (and adopting a kitten along the way!), then chopping apples for the charoset, and getting dressed up before walking to Nana‚Äôs house. The refrain throughout is ‚ÄúDayenu‚ÄĚ‚ÄĒa mind-set of thankfulness, a reminder to be aware of the blessings in each moment. At Nana‚Äôs, there‚Äôs matzo ball soup, chicken, coconut macaroons, and of course, the hidden afikomen. After opening the door for Elijah and singing the verses of ‚ÄúChad Gadya,‚ÄĚ Nana tucks the children in for a special Passover sleepover.¬†A¬†family’s cozy Passover celebration: equal parts warmth and charm.¬† Includes a comprehensive glossary.

“It‚Äôs the perfect read for the entire family
in anticipation and celebration of the Passover.”

*Yes, it will be a bit more expensive in your friendly indie bookstore. ¬†Of COURSE it will be. ¬†There are actual PEOPLE in your local bookstore who know actual books; who stock them so you can sample them in the store; who will suggest books for your son, your niece…or me. Just ask them!
So…here’s the link again to buy my book at¬†your local independent book store. And thank you for listening.
