You may never have thought you would want a frog in your soup, but Sally Rosenthal’s delightful story of frogs making matzo ball soup may start you thinking otherwise.
Minnie is having her cousins over for a Friday night Shabbat dinner. She starts preparing the soup early that morning, but the pot spills. After she cleans up the mess, Minnie has to take care of a friend and has no time to start cooking again. Her neighbors, six lively Jewish frogs, decide to come to her rescue, and when Minnie returns home the soup and matzo balls are simmering on the stove. Surprised, Minnie sees a clue that helps her realize who her benefactors are, and she responds with an act of kindness.
In Matzo Frogs Rosenthal depicts frogs who are true friends, and David Sheldon’s art adds to the whimsical features of the tale. Good deeds and cooperation are emphasized in this story for preschoolers.
Recommended.
