"Let me think," Chaim thought, "I'm not good at math."
"But with double the people, I'll only get half."

All Shabbos morning, Chaim Ephraim is looking forward to his favorite food -- cholent. As one surprise guest after another pile into his dining room, his worries grow: will there be enough left for him? But when the cholent is finally served, Chaim Ephraim discovers something incredible about the mitzvah of hachnasas orchim...

Children will laugh at the zany scenarios, brought to life by Lori Holzman's captivating rhymes and Rachel Edlestein's delightful illustrations, as they learn a valuable lesson about sharing with others.
