Benny loves to help out at his grandpa's bakery in the morning, and the customers love the crusty bagels with their soft insides. When Grandpa explains to Benny that God, not him, should be thanked for the wonderful bagels, Benny sets out to do just that. He decides to leave God a bagful of bagels in the synagogue at the end of each week. And each week God eats the bagels - or so Benny thinks ... Lovingly told, Bagels from Benny explores the values of caring and sharing, building a strong sense of community and finding joy in giving thanks.

It's so hard to find lovely books for Jewish children, tales that include the traditions or elements of our faith in a natural way 'as part of the background and assumed'. This book achieves that. This story of goodwill is heart-felt and sweet. I literally cried the first time I read it. And, in the end, while elements of the story will make Jewish children feel at home, it's a tale anyone can benefit from reading!
