The Story of Passover
A long, long time ago, in Egypt, the Pharaoh made the Israelites into slaves. He ordered that all the baby boys would have to be drowned, but one boy was saved. The Princess of Egypt rescued him and named him Moses. God told Moses to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt. The Pharaoh refused, so God gave Moses power to turn the water into blood. Then a plague of frogs came, then flies, then a bunch of ticks! The cattle died, and then hailstones mixed with fire fell on the land. A swarm of locusts attacked Egypt. The worst plague was one by one, the firstborn sons of the Egyptians were killed. The Pharaoh was very scared. He told Moses to leave before they all died, but then decided he wanted the Israelites for slaves and came after them. God helped Moses part the waters of the Red Sea, and the Israelites walked through on dry ground, but when the Egyptians came through, the water came back in and killed them. I like the pictures of the animals but not very much the people. I like the story because it is how God freed his people.
