"In the first of a series of Jewish-themed Sesame Street board books, Grover heads 'to a seder at my friend Avigail’s house.' Big Bird is also en route ('He likes matzah. Crunch!'), and Cookie Monster asks to go along ('Okay, but remember, you can only eat special kinds of cookies on Passover, Cookie!'). Moishe Oofnik and Brosh—like Avigail, two characters from Rechov Sumsum, the Israeli Sesame Street production—join the celebration. The characters gather around the table, set with two candles and a center plate filled with charoset, an egg, and other symbolic foods, and the guests introduce Passover traditions: 'Brosh asks the Four Questions. We read the story of Passover from the Haggadah. Avigail finds the afikomen. Is Passover not AWESOME?!' Leigh illustrates in classic Sesame Street style, and Sussman introduces the holiday with a cast of beloved characters."--Publishers Weekly—Journal

In It Must Be Saint Nick, Santa is shown in shadow; and in A Bundle of Toys, the presents in Santa's sack are revealed as a magnificent jumble. The final photograph, Happy Christmas to All is a beautiful, pastoral landscape, lustrous under new-fallen snow. The original poem is printed on the endpapers. Can You See What
