Why read it?

1 author picked Mouse in the Matzah Factory as one of their favorite books. Why do they recommend it?

This is one of my favorite stories and it allows the reader to observe the process of making matzah. Through the eyes of a little mouse, we watch the care that is taken from growing and harvesting the wheat, to transporting it to the matzah factory, and finally, baking it into matzah. I think this story more than any other inspired my writing. I wanted to create a relatable character that would engage young children – a character who exhibits childlike curiosity and who wants to discover and participate in the events occurring around him. 

From Sylvia's list on for Jewish preschool children.
