Who knew the way to please God was through bagels? :-)

Helping those in need, and helping them to help others, pleases God. This story brings that message home in such a beautiful and accessible way.

5.0 out of 5 stars We LOVE this book! 27 Aug. 2013
By ButterRum - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This has become one of our favorite books! In the story, little Benny wants to thank God for bagels but doesn't know how. Finally he decides the best way to thank God is by giving Him some bagels to eat. So he sneaks bagels into the temple and leaves them for God. When the bagels disappear, Benny assumes God ate them, and brings more. Eventually, however, Benny discovers God isn't eating the bagels. An unemployed, presumably homeless, man has been eating them. The man believes God has been sending the bagels from heaven to help him in his time of need. Benny is upset, but his grandfather explains by feeding a hungry man, Benny has accomplished what he set out to do: thank God.
The characters in the story are Jewish, but this is a story that transcends one religion. The man in the story believes God is sending the bagels and he isn't wrong. Benny may be naive, but God uses his selfless gift of bagels to help someone who really needed help. This is such a beautiful and sweet story. I cried the first time I read it. It appeals to ALL ages; and I love that I'm reading my children something that helps them learn a little more about the way God works rather than just another picture book.

This book is fantastic! I read it to my 3-year-old last night. It is captivating and with a wonderful lesson. I have to admit, I had a very time not crying. This book is a lovely way to introduce concepts of poverty, helping others and god as well. Highly recommend this book.
