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.

Publisher's Description

In World War II Poland, a young girl receives straw at the Christmas Eve service to bring to her impoverished family. But on her way home, Marta meets others who are much poorer than she, and she shares her piece until there is nothing left. In spite of the lack of straw--though perhaps because of her generous heart—Marta finds riches she never expected in this tender tale of Christmas giving. The Traditions of Faith series features stories of how significant Christian traditions emerged from around the world. These traditions continue to be practiced today and encompass many different holidays. Each Traditions of Faith book includes an author’s note about the history of the tradition, and ideas and activities to adopt into one's own family celebrations.
