Another Passover? Another
Seder? The Lerner kids, Ariel and Benjamin, think it's the most boring
holiday ever... that’s until their "Bubbe" finds a magical,
musical way to tell them the story that every Jew around the world tells
at their Passover table and has for thousands of years. With their
grandmother's enchanting storytelling, the children travel back in time
to ancient Egypt and experience first-hand the liberation of the Hebrews
from slavery. As they embody Moses and his brave sister, Miriam,
Benjamin confronts the Pharaoh to “let my people go” and Ariel leads
them through the parting of the Red Sea. The Lerner kids (and
listeners and readers alike) will forever remember the story of Passover and the
meaning behind its holiday traditions
