Peek-A-Boo Passover

Kar-Ben. Feb. 2022. 20p. Board $7.99. ISBN 9781728424316.
PreS–Peek-a-boo! A young white child and his kitty cat identify the matzah, candles, seder plate, Elijah’s cup, pillow, Haggadah, and other holiday items as his family celebrates the Jewish festival of Passover. The colorful, cute, and expressive illustrations depict a contemporary family with the men and boys wearing kippot. The simple text and repetitive refrain, “Peek-a-boo! I see...” will engage young children already familiar with the holiday. No explanations are provided; however, this is a welcome addition to holiday collections.
VERDICT Shelve this alongside Freidele Galya Soban Biniashvili’s I Love Matzah, Tracy Newman’s Passover Is Coming!, and Sylvia A. Rouss’s Sammy Spider’s Passover Shapes.
