The Peddler's Gift 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

Leibush lives in the sleepy little village of Korovenko. Nothing exciting ever happens there except when the peddlers come to town, and the most unusual and unlucky peddler of all is Shnook. When Shnook drops one of his hand-carved dreidels, Leibush decides to keep it for himself instead of returning it - until his conscience starts to bother him. "The Peddler's Gift" is a story about forgiveness and the importance of looking past outward appearances. Although my public library marked it with a "Hanukkah" sticker, it's a good title for any time of the year. It's both beautifully written and beautifully illustrated, and it will appeal to children and parents of any religious/ethnic background. I'd recommend it for children ages 5-8 especially, but it's a rare picture book that contains something for all ages. "The Peddler's Gift" was the winner of the 1999 Sydney Taylor Award in the category of books for younger readers.
