A tiny 2,000 years old stone tells a story about the way of life in the time of Jesus in the Holy Land.
How people dressed; how they shopped; what a kitchen looked like and the cuisine prepared; what had been common occupations? The stone, which had dropped off a Roman mosaic, finds her way to New York in the pocket of a Marine soldier visiting Israel. Her memory is sharp and she can answer many questions a contemporary child might ask.
This captivating children’s story is sprinkled with references from the scriptures and is accompanied by ravishing illustrations by the artist Elias Akleah, who grew up and resides in Nazareth, the hometown of Jesus in the Galilee.
