Item Description...
Chelm is a town without luck until the day a beautiful red-haired woman with a purple hat shows the residents that there is something even better.

Publishers Description

"Once there was a town called Chelm where there was no luck. If something could go wrong, it did. The roofs of the houses always leaked. The sidewalks were cracked. The gardens grew only weeds. Nothing was ever right." So begins best-selling children's author, Sandy Eisenberg Sasso (nearly 500,000 copies of her books are in print), in this charming, original story inspired by a Jewish folktale. Through her remarkable storytelling, Sandy Sasso has brought to life the mythical town of Chelm, and created another classic for reading aloud and discussing with children.

"Butterflies Under Our Hats "has been selected as a finalist for the Koret International Jewish Book Award in the BabagaNewz Children's Literature category Congratulations to the author and illustrator

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Butterflies Under Our Hats  Oct 12, 2006
The residents of Chelm still have no common sense and no luck. They have given up--no longer building houses, repairing sidewalks or planting gardens. When a strange woman comes to town, she offers something better than luck--hope. Sure enough, beautiful butterflies land in the town square and the townspeople catch them under their hats, just as they are instructed to do. But when it begins to rain, the townspeople need their hats to keep dry. Of course, the butterflies fly away, reinforcing the lack-of-luck in Chelm. After a closer look, however, they see a trace of butterfly "powder" left behind under each hat. That seems to be all the hope they need to start rebuilding their houses, sidewalks and gardens. From then on, they focus on the traces of hope they had all along--right under their hats.

As with all of Rabbi Sasso's books, the values here can be shared by people of all denominations. The gorgeous illustrations enhance the reader's experience, allowing the reader to feel the excitement and hope as it grows in Chelm, although the Chelm depicted here clearly has no roots in any Eastern European village. The book will inspire readers to look under their own "hats" when they think all is lost. Reviewed by Rachel Rosner
