PJ Library created the River Ride (it arrived in the March envelopes) as a storytelling tool that allows children, parents, and grandparents to tell, explore, and discuss the Passover story. Take it to the next level with this great idea!
Along with prepping the house and buying matzah, these quick videosare just what you need to get into the Passover frame of mind.
Shopping for Passover doesn’t need to feel like a chore. Use thesehelpful tips and tricks to make shopping feel like a breeze. 
PJ Our Way is proud to offer four fantastic selections this month: a classic short story collection set in Chelm, an exciting work of historical fiction about an orphan exploring 1920s Harlem, a contemporary novel following an adopted girl who finds her great-grandmother’s journal, and a charming story told through a girl’s letters to her dog. Be sure to check out these awesome options and make your choice by April 10th!
Passover is coming! Once you’ve cleared the house of chametz, (that’s leavening), asked the Four Questions, and sung Dayenu with your family, what will your tweens eat for snacks? Check out these delicious suggestions from PJ Our Way kids!
Got questions? New to the community or looking to make connections with other families? I can help!
