This gorgeous picture book in verse follows the actual story of the Exodus. Told through the eyes of a young slave girl, author Laurel Snyder and illustrator Catia Chien skillfully and gently depict the story of Pharoah, Moses, the 10 plagues, and the parting of the Red Sea in a remarkably accessible way.
With colorful cartoon pictures the story of Moses, Pharaoh, the ten plagues, and the exodus is told as a play and in rhyme. This would be fun at a Seder or in other small groups. Children will love the funny pictures of the people with gnats, flies, boils, or locusts. Actors will enjoy reading or may soon learn their parts for a fun production.
The miraculous story of how Moses was narrowly saved as an infant and then grew up to lead his people out of slavery unfolds in a straight-forward text and in vibrant and boldly colored acrylic paintings. Perfect for introducing young children to the Jewish holiday of Passover, this picture book presents the crucial events in Exodus in a format that is both accessible to children and beautiful to behold.
