Life is about finding the good in every experience.

This graphic novel for ages 8-12 depicts the ups and downs of Dr. Ruth’s life from her escape from the Nazis at age 11 aboard a Kindertransport, to her training as a sniper with the Hagganah in Israel, through her immigration to the US where she started as a maid, became a college professor, and eventually a television star. Using a trip to an amusement park with her grandchildren as its framework, the story subtly demonstrates lessons of grit, resilience, and strength that readers can apply to their own lives.

In the beginning there was emptiness, like a blank canvas.
Then, in a swirl of motion, the world was created.
The Creator was going to finish it with a special kind of light, stored in a huge jar.  But the light was so powerful, it shattered the jar into millions of pieces.  People were created to find the sparks of light and bring them back together so that the world would be perfect.
