This is a delightful book. A young girl was told by her parents that since she can now read, she can read the Passover Haggadah four questions at their family seder. Her older brother read them last year. She is known for asking lots and lots of questions.

She refuses help but thinks of all kinds of questions to ask at the seder, and when her turn comes, she starts asking four questions, including, "How many matzah balls are there in Grandma's matzah ball soup."

Her brother tells her she is supposed to read the questions in the haggadah, but the rest of the family says that she has good questions, and they proceed to answer them. Then she (with her brother's help) proceeds to read the traditional four questions.

I really like the books because it encourages young children to ask questions about the seder, and I think we will implement that at our seder next year. It is such an obvious thing to do now that I know of it.

This is Marcy’s year to ask The Four Questions. She can now read and is very excited, but her brother Jake fears she will mess it up. Marcy is not worried she asks questions all of the time. Her most recent was, “Can I have a pet elephant?” Her mom asked if she could help her prepare, but Marcy stated she didn’t need any help, except for which dress she should wear. At the table, it was time for Marcy to shine, but she didn’t ask the questions from the Haggadah. What questions do you think she asked, and did she get the answers?

This colorfully illustrated story is fun and also shares the culture and history of the Jewish people and why Passover is so important. Beginner readers will find the sentences easy to navigate and read. Teachers, parents and caregivers can use this as a way to teach Passover, Jewish history and culture and also to ask listeners to share some of their own family history and culture.
