Publisher's Description

For Ruthie's seventh birthday, Grandma Gussie gives her a box of candles. Ruthie has enough candles for each of the Jewish holidays and Shabbats in the year. When the candles are gone, Ruthie will be eight years old. But her seventh year will bring about a big change in her life--a new member of her family--which Ruthie will have to accept before she can truly celebrate her eighth birthday.
