Description
In this warmhearted story for readers and listeners of all ages, the son of a Baptist minister is downhearted when, just before Christmas, a storm ruins the wall behind the altar in the Detroit church his family had just finished renovating. A miracle then comes to them in two parts: first father and son scour the local junk shops and find a beautiful tapestry to cover the hole; then an old Jewish woman recognizes the tapestry for what it is, and an old Jewish man recognizes her.

"[Patricia] Polacco is a master at intergenerational, interfaith stories that bring comfort and joy, and this one based on homilies she had heard widely separated in time and place is no exception…. Christian and Jewish holiday celebrations intermingle with the message that nothing in the universe is random. The tender colors and gestures in the illustrations echo the text to make a satisfying whole."—Booklist
