T-8 days ’til Pesach and mommy is finding that she needs a little multimedia distraction to get it all done. Enter It’s Passover, Grover, Shalom Sesame’s newest offering in the Jewish holiday line features the irrepresable Grover as the lead character, along with a host of adorable Hollywood cameos.
My favorite is none other than Jake Gyllenhaal, playing a little hide-n-seek with the afikomen. My seven year-old thought it was a bit goofy, but my five- and almost two-year olds were completely charmed (as was their mama).
Other highlights of the 30-minute DVD include reviewing how to count to four in Hebrew (kind of basic for my sabra sons, but cute if your kids are just learning to count in Ivrit); experiencing the wonders of a Moroccan Mimouna festival in Israel; and celebrating Pesach alongside a family of olim from Ethiopia.
