About Yankee at the Sedar:
The war is over and they're saying the South lost. Ten-year-old Jacob would give anything to show those Yankees that not all Confederates are ready to surrender. He gets his chance when he sees a real, live Yankee soldier walking down his street, on leave for Passover. But before Jacob can think of a way to be brave, the Yankee asks for a piece of his matzoh!
This beautiful, engaging story about a Jewish Yankee soldier joining a Southern family's Passover meal is based on a true story.
With luminous illustrations by Adam Gustavson, the book shows an unlikely seder and the beginning of a new friendship that is based on shared values and hopes for the future.
