David is so poor he can barely feed his family. A delightful, timeless legend based on Jewish tradition, In God’s Hands tells of the ordinary miracles that occur when we really, truly open our eyes to the world around us.. But when Jacob wakes up from a nap in synagogue one day, sure that God has demanded twelve loaves of bread from him, all this changes in amazing ways you’d never expect. A Charming tale to remind us all that our kindness works miracles.“When the sun sets and stars fill the sky, the square in the little town grows quiet and still. Jacob is so consumed with staying rich he thinks about nothing but money. But the two men have one thing in common: they both believe that miracles are big, magical things that can only happen somewhere else, to someone else. It’s the sort of place where miracles could happen.”David and Jacob live in the same little, ordinary town, but it’s almost as if they’re from different worlds. The moon rises and glows softly. The cool air of distant hills mingles with the sweet scent of baking bread

David, the poor caretaker, discovers the loaves and believes that they were sent from God to answer his prayers for food to feed his family. Based on a traditional folktale, Kushner and Schmidt's retelling is greatly enhanced by Baek's detailed illustrations in deep blues and earth colors. Over the years, Jacob's giving and David's receiving become routine. Similar to Aubrey Davis's Bagels from Benny (Kids Can, 2003), this version follows the original more closely and has a slightly more sophisticated message.–Rachel Kamin, Temple Israel Libraries & Media Center, West Bloomfield, MICopyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. When the rabbi discovers the two men and reveals to them what has been happening, they both learn how their hands have become God's hand in creating a miracle.
