The Purim Story is told in lovely rhymes and wonderful images and relates the events that are commemorated by this holiday 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 the evil plot of wicked Haman who 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.
