Publisher's Description

"Miguel’s family needs a new roof, firewood, and clothing to survive the winter. Miguel hope his father, a pastry peddler, will sell enough tasty treats to buy the things they need. But all the villagers they meet have also endured great hardship, and Miguel;s father gives his pastries to those who need them most. Miguel feels heartbroken. Then something happens that teaches him that kindness is far more valuable than money."

Editorial Reviews

The golden rule gets the spotlight in this tale of selflessness. By focusing on prayer's inspirational power rather than specific doctrine, the nondenominational approach appeals broadly. The religious message cannot escape an earnest wholesomeness, though it refrains from didacticism. Biblical quotations support the straightforward narration. Repetitive dialogue builds the familiar arc to its uplifting conclusion. Soft colors suit the quiet message; rounded shapes reveal a sweet vulnerability within each light spread. Overall, Christian charity receives a gentle endorsement.
Good deeds and faith play a major role in this parable about trusting in providence. While the story is predictable, its Mexican countryside setting sets it apart. Lamut’s idealized illustrations portray warm characters in traditional costumes, dancing, singing, and marketing. A good choice for collections where there is demand for religiously themed stories.
