Rainbows of soft colors paint the patterned fabrics, the bustling city scenes, and the tranquil rural fields in which a curious mouse's attention is drawn to the preparation of shmurah matzah, eaten by observant Jews during Passover. A cheerful mouse in denim overalls has his curiosity whetted when some men build a fence around a field of wheat and carefully watch over it. The little creature follows along as the wheat is taken to a mill, trucked to a city, and taken to a room to be mixed, rolled, and baked. After he sees families lined up to buy the boxes of "baked circles," he reads a box label that describes how the matzah "has been watched from the time of harvest through the time of baking." The mouse, too, has viewed the entire process and feels "very important." passoverbooks
