Ask any Jewish child what their favorite part of the Passover seder is and they will undoubtedly say “searching for the afikoman!” This ritual, in which a piece of broken matzah is hidden for the kids to find after the meal, is always a huge hit. 

AFIKOMAN, WHERE’D YOU GO? brings this Passover tradition to life — literally. It is Where’s Waldo meets The Gingerbread Man — a fast-paced hide-and-seek romp, starring a silly, sneaky piece of matzah on the run and a group of kids who will not quit until he’s brought back to the seder table. 

Readers are invited to join the hunt by helping the narrator and her family find the clever Afikoman hiding in the illustrations on each page. The book is sprinkled with Hebrew words and includes a glossary where readers can learn more about this fun Jewish tradition.
