Papa Panov is a widowed, lonely shoemaker. On Christmas Eve he has a dream that he hears the voice of God telling him to look out for Jesus during the following day. The story focusses on his reactions to the people that he meets on Christmas Day.
This is a very thoughtful story, based on the Bible text 'I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me water' which Jesus used to make us understand how we should serve him by serving each other. The story of Papa Panov is an excellent way to introduce young chldren to the principles of kindness. It is in our Christmas box, and we have enjoyed it over several years.
