Everyone at school usually shares their lunch, but one day, Noa refuses to swap food, and her friends wonder why. She explains it's because it's Passover, and explains the story of how Jewish people fleeing from Egypt ate unleavened bread because there was "no time for bread to rise." The story only piques her classmates curiosity even more, so for the rest of the week, she brings Passover foods to school to share with her friends and let them enjoy the holiday fun!
Written in cheerful verse and with bright illustrations that highlight the many modern ways Noa enjoys her matzah — "chocolate matzah, matzah brei… / then a matzah pizza pie!" — this book is a fun way to introduce the holiday of Passover and encourage kids to share their own family's holiday traditions.
