On One Foot tells a story of Rabbi Hillel, an historical teacher and scholar. In this episode, a young man wants to find a very wise rabbi to teach him the Torah while standing on one foot. He searches throughout Jerusalem but cannot find anyone who can do this, until he meets Rabbi Hillel. The book is simply told and conveys the wisdom and goodness of Rabbi Hillel. The mixed media illustrations are appealing and support the story beautifully. On One Foot is written for children ages 5 to 9, but the lesson is appropriate for everyone.
