Note: 
The theme of this folktale-like story is that just enough is plenty. Mayer Aaron Levi's tree is fruitful enough to produce lemons for his wife to make into lemonade and more to give to neighbors. Mayer gives them away without telling his wife and when she discovers that some of the lemons that she carefully counted are missing, he lets the recipients of the lemons, through their gratitude, show her the importance of tzedaka. This is one of the author's Jewish Heirloom Stories and it invites readers to write about their own family's tzedaka heirlooms. It is attractively illustrated.
