Winner of the National Jewish Book Award

Rody is in charge of the chicken coop on the kibbutz where he lives in Israel’s Jezreel Valley. He loves his job so much and makes the work seem so delightful that everyone wants a chance to tend the brood. When they do, Rody is transferred elsewhere. But as Rody moves from job to job, the kibbutz learns it’s not what you do, but how you do it that makes a difference.
