Mitzvah Girl by Beverly Geller


Mitzvah Girl by Beverly Geller

This book captures the excitement of Purim day as we share in the Megilla reading, preparation of shalach manot, and Shira's love for her special Queen Esther costume and gold crown. This is more than a Purim holiday story, it also reinforces the value of charity and kindness -- making it appropriate reading for any time of the year.
