Children’s Haggadah to Enhance the Family Passover Experience

A children’s Haggadah can be an excellent accompaniment to any seder, thus allowing for a shorter rendition of the important Jewish Passover traditions. A Haggadah for kids keeps them entertained through the seder, and will often include bright pictures and Passover activities.

We retell the story each year to a growing audience. The family Haggadah can be reused yearly so long as it remains appropriate for all at the seder. Here I have collected some of the best children’s Haggadah examples that are great for the family seder. Below is a selection of books that entertain and teach leading up to the holiday. They also make great Passover gifts for the those who find the afikomen.

Our Children’s Haggadah

We have always been fans of Sammy Spider to weave holiday tales for our kids. Following up on Sammy Spider’s First Passover, there is now a 32-page Sammy Spider’s First Haggadah. Targeted for pre-school to Grade 1 students, our whole family enjoys being guided through Passover traditions by Sammy. This short Haggadah holds our kid’s attention long enough to bring them through the Pesach Seder and onto the traditional Passover meal.
