Juvenile Nonfiction: Holidays & Celebrations
The Christmas Mitzvah
By Jeff Gottesfeld
Illustrated by Michelle Laurentia Agatha
A loving blend of Hannukah and Christmas traditions, The Christmas Mitzvah encapsulates the generous spirit of both holidays, doing good for others.
“Jeff Gottesfeld once again introduces readers to an unsung hero whose compassion and kindness make the world a better place. The Christmas Mitzvah is a heartwarming holiday story that is just right for our modern era,and one that will resonate with all faiths. The good deeds (aka mitzvahs) of Al Rosen and his son illustrate the importance of opening one’s heart and giving selflessly to others. This story is destined to become a holiday classic for generations. Beautifully illustrated, it is too good to only read once a year. It will become a family favorite — a book to keep on the shelf and at the bedside all year. I can already hear the sound of children, in love with this story and saying ‘read it again, please!’”
