It's Passover on Sesame Street, and Grover invites a few friends to a Seder at his house. More and more guests show up, and room is made at the table to honor the traditional Passover invitation: "Let all who are hungry come and eat." Girls and boys ages 2 to 5 will particularly enjoy the story’s focus on the exciting hunt for the Passover afikomen, a piece of matzah that’s hidden for the children to find. A brief explanation of the history and customs of Passover is included at the end. Stickers, a poster that shows a splendid Seder plate, and a press-out matching card game add to the holiday fun. The messages of inclusion and friendship make this colorful paperback storybook particularly timely.
