It Could Always Be Worse: A Yiddish Folk Tale

Written and Illustrated by Margot Zemach

A poor man lives with his wife, mother, and six children in a crowded one-room hut. The children fight and the man argues with his wife. Desperate for some peace and quiet, the man asks the Rabbi for help. The Rabbi's advice makes the situation worse at first, but will it get better in the long run?
