Asteroid Goldberg: Passover in Outer Space
Asteroid Goldberg: Passover in Outer Space is a story about a young Jewish girl and her family who live on Pluto. She races toward Earth to prepare for Seder night. Sadly, they are told they cannot land on Earth and they have to do Seder in space. Asteroid is tasked with finding all the elements of the meal throughout space. She travels to the planets and the Big Dipper gathering matzoh balls, horseradish, and guests for her family’s celebration.
If you don’t already know about the Jewish holidays or customs, this book might be pretty confusing to you. There is a short glossary at the back of the book to help with words such as kneidel and haggadah. The illustrations are detailed drawings, which are quite fun and give the book a joyful feel throughout.
I recommend this book for younger children who might be of the Jewish faith or who are interested in learning more about Jewish traditions.
