Abu Kasim was a seller of rags, and day after day he would drudge through the streets begging people to buy something. One day, after sharing some bread with a beggar on the street, a beautiful woman gave him a gorgeous pair of slippers that just happened to fit him perfectly! Suddenly, Abu Kasim is selling his rags faster than ever before, and he is even able to open a shop and buy himself a new pair of slippers. What happens next? Michelle Shapiro Abraham tells the story, which is adapted from [italics: The Magic Sandals of Ibn David] from “The Diamond Tree,” selected and retold by Howard Schwartz and Barbara Rush.
