Praise for New Mitzvah Stories for the Whole Family

“It’s not so easy to know what is right or how to be a righteous person in this complicated world. If someone tells us how to live, we might not want to listen…but if they tell us a good story, we can come to the truth for ourselves. New Mitzvah Stories for the Whole Family is a powerful, sweet and touching collection of teaching stories that help us to find our love and know our own truth.”
