    First my 4 YO loves it I'm rating it according to his feelings I would give it a 2 personallyI accept books and characters for what they are but I was surprised by Eli's dishonesty with his parents in the story telling them the handkerchief the afikomen was wrapped in wasn't with the matzah It gave me an opportunity to talk to my kids about honesty so that was okay oI do appreciate that there is in a way a message about helping the less fortunate The little boy's generosity to the mouse character who didn't have matzoh for Passover reminded me of Proverbs 630 and the idea of helping the poor leaving parts of your harvest etc The ending was abrupt Like this ;o

    “Abovestairs” the Winklers are humans who are in the midst of their Passover seder when “belowstairs” the mouse family can’t start their seder without any matzah Unfortunately the Winklers have a new tin box in which the matzah supply is stored No way for a mouse to chew through that Thankfully Miriam mouse gets her opportunity when dad Winkler hides the afikomen beneath the bookcase Alas the piece of matzah is too big to fit through the tiny mouse hole where Miriam struggles to take it for her family’s seder When the youngest Winkler Eli finds the hidden afikomen and spots Miriam struggling to get it inside her Belowstairs home the two decide to share it Off Miriam goes with her half and with matzah in paw the mouse family is finally able to begin their seder A sweet and delightful depiction of a Passover celebration and a lovely addition for every holiday book library An author’s note follows providing a brief but informative overview of the holiday

    A great introduction to the tradition of eating matzah on Passover and specifically to the tradition of hiding the afikomen for young children wrapped in a charming right kind of old fashioned story about a miniature mouse world hiding in a bigger human home It's still unusual to see Jewish themed picture books that diverge from realism except in the case of a few traditional folk type tales and which feature anthropomorphized animals so this is a much appreciated addition When I was growing up almost all the favorite children's book characters celebrated Christmas I wanted to see book families including animal and magical ones like mine I'm glad to see of these coming out and I hope they can eventually serve as window books that reach beyond just a Jewish audience
