The story of Passover from the Bible with an aside that ancient Egyptian texts "wrote very little about the Hebrews." I disagree with some of the author's retelling; e.g., the Hebrews built store cities, not temples and pyramids; Moses didn't quite make it to Canaan. I would add that the drops of wine taken from each Seder participant's cup for the plagues is meant to diminish our joy.

The first half of this book is the Biblical story of Passover. The second half goes into great detail about modern Passover practices. Very informative, with simple and cheerful illustrations.
