In the seventh book in the Kids Speak series, Chaim Walder continues to retell stories sent to him by Orthodox Jewish children from around the world. This book is a compilation of eleven stories, including one about a boy who is afraid of policemen as a result of his father having been wrongfully arrested and his subsequent encounter with a warm and helpful officer. Another story depicts an adolescent boy who must overcome his anger towards his brother who lost his camera’s memory card which was filled with important pictures. He is calmed by his unmarried sister, who tells him that if he overcomes his anger he can make a wish of G‑d. His wish is granted in a very special way — the card is found by an American yeshiva student who later proposes to his sister. Each tale has a message for the reader steeped in rich Jewish sentiment. A glossary of the Hebrew, Yiddish, and Aramaic words used in the stories is included.
Recommended for ages 6 – 13.
