Note: 
The colorful illustrations in this rhyming book are somewhat cartoonish and old-fashioned in style as well as content —will today’s children even recognize a public pay phone? - but the message is captivating and real: When one person does a mitzvah, it sets an example that others will follow. Young Dov, on his way to school, removes a rock from the street so no one will trip over it, and this simple act leads others to decide that they will resist the urge to put off doing mitzvot. For the most part, the mitzvot are acts of loving-kindness that any child could do. The story encourages them to understand that their actions have consequences and that “one mitzvah can change the whole world for good”.
