The Passover Surprise
by Janet Ruth Heller
The Passover Surprise is a historical nonfiction chapter book for kids that is set back in the years near 1960. Lisa and her little brother love collecting stamps and their father is holding a contest for the prize of a new stamp book. This creates a problem for Lisa and she must solve a difficult problem. With a strong connection to family and tradition, the story touches on World war II and the Civil Rights Era.
There are 6 very short chapters. The book is 48 pages including a Teacher guide and glossary. Each chapter is about 1-5 pages long. My son is a great reader and in the second grade and he could read it well. Of course, I stopped to help him follow along with meaning and messages. The Passover and Era’s are a tad difficult if left to read at a young age on their own so it was a perfect book for us to read together.
Janet Ruth Heller is the Author and has a Ph.D. in English Language and Literature and a past president of the Society for the Study of Midwestern Literature and is currently the president of the Michigan College English Association. Because she has also served as a teacher and principal, she does a fantastic job of bringing heavy historical topics alive in a children’s book.
