The Passover Lamb by Linda Elovitz Marshall

This picture book is about an unusual passover celebration with a unique character involved.  It's also based on a true story.

Random House sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

A little girl lives on a farm and is looking forward to seder; she gets to sing the four questions this year.  As she's tending the sheep on the big day, she notices one doesn't appear to be well.  She's well, she just getting ready to give birth.

Imagine the family's surprise when she has three baby lambs!  When she pushes one away because she only has milk for two, Miriam is afraid going to her grandparent's house for Passover seder won't be possible.  She's inventive, though, and comes up with a way to make the trip.

This is a pleasant family story that will give you a chuckle when you find out what Miriam's solution is.  

Happy reading.
