“The happy holiday of Purim is introduced in this entry in the Celebrations in My World series. The book begins with a general introduction to the spring holiday and its place on the Jewish calendar. A brief look at Judaism is followed by a synopsis of the story of Esther and several pages explaining the various ways in which the holiday is celebrated: going to a synagogue, giving to charity, exchanging gifts, and so on. Traditional food and the costumes donned for Purim also are discussed. Slim and oversize, the book’s hallmark is a bright layout filled with photographs.” —Booklist, 11/10
