The Tattered Prayer Book, winner of The Mom's Choice Award, is a gentle introduction to the Holocaust for children. Looking through a box of mementos from “the old country,” Ruthie discovers a secret about her father. As he tells his story, Ruthie learns how her family fled Nazi Germany, and how a burnt prayer book, taken in secret, offers solace to a boy at the most difficult time in his life.
