The Little Red Hen and the Passover Matzah By Leslie Kimmelman

Buy This Book

A wonderful retelling of a story we all know. The Little Red Hen works while her lazy friends--dog, horse, and sheep--are resting. Nobody will help her to grow her wheat, grind her flour, or make her matzah, and she's not happy about the situation ( "Oy Gevalt!"). But in the end she remembers (quoting the Passover Haggadah) to "Let all who are hungry come and eat." I like that she lets herself get angry, even though she forgives in the end. I also like that the book includes a really easy matzah recipe that kids can handle.
