About Artwork

Herman was a silversmith and worked all day in his shop heating, hammering, and shaping silver metal. People came from far and wide to Herman’s shop because he was the best silversmith in the county. His wife, Hanna loved her family, but disliked what happened when they ate. They used their fingers to bring food to their mouths. With their fingers all messy and sticky, they wanted to clean them before they took their next bite.

Illustrated by Monica Zrust. This full-color, hard cover book with dust jacket is 35 pages. Perfect for ages 5 and up.
