SUMMARY: Hannah and Noah's family is getting ready for Passover. They are ready to sit down for their meal, just the four of them, but another member of the family shows up. This happens several times before they are able to complete their traditional celebration. It is late By this time and Noah becomes so tired, he falls asleep at the table.

ILLUSTRATIONS: The illustrations appear to be created with paint. They are colorful and lively, adding to the sense of fun.

THE GOOD: This book was hilarious. Every time the family thought they would be able to complete their Seder, another sheep would turn up. Papa sheep would have to find another seat (even getting so desperate as to use a lawn chair) and everyone would have to squeeze in. I love the little corner picture of Noah on each page saying, "And Noah gave a tiny yawn." His yawn grew bigger each time. This addition is a fun way to allow kids to participate when they see the picture of Noah. But most important of all, is the sense of family you get from reading the story.
THE NOT AS GOOD: I really really really needed a glossary and even a little explanation about Passover. I did not understand some of the story because I did not understand words such as karpas, afikomen, charoset, maror, and matzah. This would have been a wonderful opportunity for the author to educate those of us who do not celebrate Passover about this very important celebration.
