0 p.
Note: 
This beautifully written and illustrated little story is adapted from Midrash Tanhuma, telling of the angel who gives an unborn baby a soul, teaches it all of the world's wisdom, including the entire Torah, and then removes all that knowledge at birth by touching the baby above the lip, causing it to forget everything and leaving the mark above the lip that all humans bear. Told with the intimacy and simplicity of a bedtime story and warmly illustrated, it is outstanding!
