Sara Finds a Mitzva is a beautifully illustrated storybook that highlights the importance of returning lost items to their owners. When Sara finds a little toy duck abandoned on top of a mailbox, she and her grandmother embark on a search for the owner that takes them from place to place. Will Sara find her mitzva in the end? And how will she feel about giving up that cute toy duck with shiny black button eyes and soft white wings? The Torah teaches that we should make every effort to return lost items to their owners. This mitzvah, Hashavas Aveida, is one that even young children can appreciate.
