Editorial Reviews

"A young girl has gone to six different Passover seders in the three years since her parents' divorce. At the sixth seder, attended by both her mom and dad, the girl's mother likens families to different varieties of charoset, a traditional dish: 'Some have more ingredients...But each one is tasty in its own way.' The realistic story is accompanied by pattern-filled illustrations. Charoset recipes are included." --The Horn Book Guide
