Originally written by French author Reuben Saillens and later retold by Leo Tolstoy, this endearing and timeless story has now acquired the status of a folk-tale and is great to read out loud with children.
The heartening story of a lonely shoemaker named Papa Panov whose generosity demonstrates the virtues of kindness and compassion. Mig Holder's much loved text is complemented by charming illustrations by Julie Downing which capture the changing mood of the story.

This book brought tears to my eyes. A shopkeeper is lonely, but desperately wants to have met Jesus. On Christmas, he has the opportunity to help others, not realizing he is doing those things as if he was meeting Jesus. But then he realizes how he can truly encounter Christ by following Him. Loved it.
