Hershel wants to help his mother so much. But there is only one problem - he is blind. When he has a dream one night about making beautiful cookies to sell during Purim, his mother tells him there is just no way he could do it. But when she falls asleep, too tired to work anymore with a large lump of dough still waiting to be made into hamantashen, Hershel decides to follow his heart. When his mother awakes, she finds the most intricate cookies ever made - and they sell out at the market that day! What is more, the baker even tells Hershel that perhaps he could come and work at the bakery some day.
Jaime Zollars' illustrations just add to the magic of the book, with pictures that manage to be both realistic and imaginative at the same time.
This book will be one we read not only during Purim, but all year long.
