Get Your Haggadot From Bed Bath and Beyond this Passover

In recent years, we have released three essential titles to help create new ways for families with young children to participate in their Passover seder. 

With help from The Gateways Haggadah, Frogs in the Bed, and Kayla and Kugel's Almost-Perfect Passover, your children will be interested and engaged during the seder. 

The Gateways Haggadah helps families with children of all abilities and disabilities participate fully in the seder with step-by-step directions for every element of the Passover seder. This concise Haggadah is respectful to all participants, whatever their abilities, to ensure that all can take part meaningfully in a complete Passover seder. 

Transliteration is conveyed by 150 picture communication symbols developed in conjunction with Mayer-Johnson.

Frogs in the Bed is a combination storybook and activity book, humorously illustrated after the popular song "One Morning (The Frog Song)" by Shirley Cohen Steinberg. The book includes pre-holiday crafts, an age appropriate telling of the Passover story, the Four Questions, and quiet table activities matched to sections of the seder. AND it can be used with any haggadah!


Kayla and Kugel's Almost-Perfect Passover offers a perfect story for family time before or after your Passover seder. Kayla loves Passover with Kugel - even though he almost spills the grape juice, makes a mess of the matzah, and takes off with the afikoman! This story touches on the highlights on the Passover seder, pointing out key aspects with warmth and humor. 

Order your copies of The Gateways Haggadah, Frogs in the Bed, and Kayla and Kugel's Almost-Perfect Passover from the Behrman House online store or on Amazon.
