Title: The Miracle of the Golden Dove and Other Stories
Author: Genendel Krohn
Illustrator: Tova Katz
A delightful lap-sized hardcover, The Miracle of the Golden Dove and Other Stories holds captivating illustrations that deliver a powerful middot-improving message with the text.
Actual historical events that reveal the majesty of Torah-true values and the reality that each of us – in our own clumsy way – can grow into tzadikim, come to life on succeeding pages.
Honesty is a nice character trait, but this book teaches “true honesty,” and in a favorably impressionable way. The Golden Dove account shows us that prayers can turn into miracles plus the sanctification not only of Hashem’s name, but also that of the person who prayed.
Lessons on learning to judge favorably and the patience to outwit a verbally abusive spouse are lessons for life. Your lives and those of your family members, from age five and up, will be better off for having shared the thought-provoking stories retold in this third volume of Timeless Tales by Feldheim publishers.
Learn together as a family or special friends when you share The Miracle of the Golden Dove and Other Stories with younger readers around you. The experience will be good for their developing minds and characters.

Purim is a fantastic time for fantasies, so I hope you won’t mind my fantasizing about how easy life would be if kids would prefer healthy cuisine over sweets. Imagine waking up to the call of “Mommy, when will my oatmeal be ready?”… As you rush to ladle out the hot unsweetened cereal, you rub […]
