Lovely rhymes and wonderful images relate the Story of Purim to young children in a fun and enjoyable fashion.

The holiday of Purim is celebrated every year in the month of Adar, four weeks before Passover. Purim is plural for the word Pur, which means "lot". It refers to wicked Haman's plot. Haman, a high-ranking minister of the Persian King, drew lots to determine the best day to eliminate the Jewish people living in the Persian Empire during the days of King Achashverosh (Xerxes I, Fourth Century BCE).

In addition to the story of Queen Esther, her uncle Mordechai and the fall of wicked Haman, the book also includes information about the traditional observances of Purim, which include hearing the Megillah read at the synagogue, charity to the poor, and much more.

Mazor Guide for Purim brings you much more about the holiday, its meaning and its traditions... See the links below.

"Purim in Words and Pictures" recounts in detail the extraordinary story of the miraculous reversal of fortune of Persian Jewry in the days of Xerxes I, the emperor who is more widely known as King Achashverosh. The story begins with King Achashverosh’s grandiose party and ends with Mordechai’s appointment as the Persian king’s top minister. The complicated story involves a beauty contest, servants conspiring to kill the king, and an evil plot by an evil man to eliminate the Jewish people. This informative coloring book, which is based on the text of Megillat Esther (the Scroll of Esther), also includes an overview of the main customs and traditions associated with the celebration of the holiday. Recommended for children between the ages of 6-11. Enjoy!
