Miguel's family needs a new roof, firewood, and clothing to survive the winter. Miguel hopes his father, a pastry peddler, will sell enough tasty treats to buy the things they need.

Then something happens that teaches him that kindness is far more valuable than money. Papa's Pastries, based on a true story, helps readers of all ages understand the importance of family, faith, compassion, community, and being grateful for God's blessings.
