Rebecca is getting ready to celebrate Passover and she is helping Granny Sarah make the special food needed for the Sedar. As Rebecca and her brother work, Granny Sarah tells them the story of Passover: how God sent the ten plagues to the Egyptians and how Moses led the freed Israelite slaves through the Red Sea and across the desert. This is the delightful and informative story of modern day celebration, told from the perspective of a child living through the festival.
