Every once in a while, we come across a children’s book that we all just love. And that we read over and over and over again — until almost everyone has it memorized word-for-word. Papa’s Pastries is one such book.
Not only does this book have beautiful pictures and an engaging story which our girls were captivated by, but it introduces children to the reality that so many people around the world are much needier than us. In our affluent and wasteful culture, it’s hard to even imagine what it would be like to not know where our next meal will come from or to be so poor that no one in your family has shoes.
Papa’s Pastries has served as an excellent springboard for discussions with the girls on the importance of giving. As this story shows and we’ve experienced in our own life, when you’re a cheerful giver, you will always end up immeasurably blessed. Through hardship, young Miguel learns a simple truth: “And all things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.” This is a story of faith, compassion and giving that your whole family will enjoy.
