The ArtScroll Youth Haggadah is an oversized, fully illustrated Haggadah that features the complete text of the Haggadah in Hebrew, along with a simplified translation in English and brief commentary on the text that highlights the meaning and significance of many of the Hebrew terms found in the Haggadah. This Haggadah also features a sturdy binding that will withstand repeated use, and a stain-resistant cover.

This Haggadah features larger than normal print that makes this text especially easy to read for younger readers as well as for those who need or desire a large print text. In addition, important words and phrases are highlighted in red. More important, the ArtScroll Youth Haggadah can be used at your Passover (Pesach) Seder in conjunction with Artscroll's Family Haggadah. The two Haggadahs follow the same basic format, and younger readers will have no problem following along with a Seder conducted with The Family Haggadah, while using their own Youth Haggadah.

In addition to usefulness at the Seder table, the ArtScroll Youth Haggadah also includes an overview on the preparation for Passover and the order of the Seder. This introductory material, along with the main text, English translation, and commentary makes this an ideal Haggadah for use as an instruction manual on the Seder for younger readers as well as for those new to the celebration and meaning of the Passover Seder.
