Grover Does Passover {DVD Review}

The Shalom Sesame videos have been getting a lot of play in my house. This month, we're watching the Passover video, with what might be my favorite new musical parody:

Now, frankly, my kids don't get why this one is funny at all. They would prefer to watch Grover and that little pink furry character run around looking for the Maror. They like to hear the Count count in Hebrew, and watch the monsters run around teaching the numbers up to four.

Shalom Sesame, 2010, No. 7: It's Passover, Grover!But I am a big fan of seeing Jake Gyllenhaal hide the afikoman and the teaching about Mimuna, a Moroccan celebration at the end of Pesach. They weren't as enamored of these sections as I was. But it's okay, it kept us all entertained!

And my favorite part? The Seder table was presided over by three women. Even though we didn't actually watch them conduct the Seder itself, I still liked the idea that a Seder can have many different appearances and still be a Seder.

You can get your own copy of Shalom Sesame: It's Passover, Grover here or at Amazon.

Full disclosure: I received a free copy of this DVD for the purposes of review.
P.S. Mara is giving one away over at Kosher On a Budget!

Adorable. My family never had the custom of hiding and searching for the Afikomen, and we never did it with our kids either.
