What happens when parents use words to mean one thing – but kids imagine something completely different?

“The wicked, stubborn Pharaoh had finally given in and freed the Jewish People. He was not only punished, but ended up EATING HIS WORDS."
Kids will love the zany images that Rachel conjures up when her father uses clich├ęs like “Eating His Words” or “Burying His Head in the Sand” to describe Pharaoh’s stubbornness.

Review:

"Meet Rachel, the youngest in her family. After she recites the Four Questions at the Passover seder, her father answers the questions by explaining the story of Pharaoh by using cliches to get the point across.

For example, he explains how The wicked, stubborn Pharaoh had finally given in and freed the Jewish People. He was not only punished, but ended up EATING HIS WORDS. This cleverly written story, with explanations of each cliche and brightly colored, cartoon-like illustrations, helps get the point across to the younger readers.  It is a great story for those with a sense of humor.

Rachel learns that sometimes parents use words to mean one thing but kids might imagine something completely different.

Kids will love the zany images that Rachel conjures up in her head when her father uses cliches like Burying His Head in the Sand or Got a Taste of His Own Medicine to describe Pharaohs stubbornness.

The author includes a cliche definition page as well as a brief Childrens Haggadah in English and Hebrew. This could be a great addition to any Jewish day school library as well as an English lesson on the use of cliches."- Lisa Katz, The Association of Jewish Libraries
