Are your kids fascinated by the prehistoric relics found in your basement? We’re talking items like corded phones, cassettes, records (if you’re old enough to know what those are!)…things like that.
If so—surprise, surprise!—you are raising a very 2016 family!
Now, while that’s all fine and good when it comes to your kids being able to teach you how to use your new laptop or digital camera, there is a downside to this kid tech-savvy: can your kids ever fully relate to the stories that took place in the “olden days”?
Take the story of Yetzias Mitzrayim, for example. We are commanded to see ourselves as if we—not only our ancestors—left Mitzrayim. Yet in a day and age when the most kids know about rulers and kings is the President, with his bulletproof limo and Secret Service bodyguards, how are they to relate to Pharaoh and his chariot and officers?
This is the beauty—and the fun—of Just Imagine! We’re Leaving Egypt, a comic book for kids that depicts the story of Yetzias Mitzrayim as if it had happened in 2016. Pharaoh calls his personal bodyguard on his cell phone, to order him to find some kind of relief from the painful boils covering his body during Makkas Shechin (of course to no avail). An army of tanks and airplanes is hired to try to destroy the wild animals during Makkas Arov (ditto to no avail). And there’s lots more…
Just Imagine! reads like an action book—because it is one! And although the story itself is not historically the way Yetzias Mitzrayim really occurred, you better believe it’ll help your children truly feel the story of Yetzias Mitzrayim this year!
