Product Description

Polish tradition has it that if one takes a bit of straw--symbolizing the Manger in which Christ was born--one's needs will be met throughout the coming year. Part of the Traditions of Faith series, this story is set in World War II Poland. A young girl receives a piece of straw at the Christmas service. During the next few days she encounters friends and strangers who are in need. Marta shares her straw until there is none left for herself.

The Traditions of Faith series illustrates how Christian holiday customs have evolved around the world. Each book includes a history of the tradition, as well as ideas and activities to incorporate into one's own family celebrations. Recommended for ages 4 to 8.
