The most celebrated holiday in the Jewish year, Passover commemorates the Exodus of Hebrew slaves from Egypt to freedom over 3,500 years ago. This colourful book explores the many forms that this weeklong celebration takes worldwide.

Deborah Heiligman's rich text details the long lavish meals called seders, at which Exodus is recalled in ritual, prayer, song, and story.

The historical significance of the food at these Passover feasts is also explained, and delicious recipes encourage readers to experience the full flavours of this internationally observed holiday.

Rabbi Shira Stern's informative note provides parents and teachers with a historical and cultural background of the celebration of Passover. National Geographic supports K-12 educators with ELA Common Core Resources. Visit www.natgeoed.org/commoncore for more information.
