How Dalia Put a Big Yellow Comforter Inside a Tiny Blue Box
by Linda Heller;  illustrated by Stacey Dressen McQueen

Is Dalia’s little blue box magic--or is the real magic the generosity that helps her fill it?  When Dalia learns about tzedakah, the Jewish tradition of charity and caring, she creates a tzedakah box where she can keep the money she’s saved to help those in need.  Her little brother Yossi is curious about the Hebrew letters painted on the box. "Are those letters magic?" he asks. They must be because Dalia tells him she's putting a big yellow comforter, a butterfly bush, and a banana cream pie inside of it! How ever will she do it? Though there may be joy in receiving, Dalia’s story serves as a powerful reminder that the greatest joy of all comes from giving generously to others.
