Little Giovanni is poor and homeless, but he can do something wonderful: he can juggle.The people of Sorrento marvel at his talents, and before long, he becomes famous throughout Italy for his rainbow of colored balls that delight the nobility and townspeople alike. But as the years pass, Giovanni grows old, and his talents begin to fail him. No longer a celebrated performer, he is once again poor and homeless, begging for his food. Until one Christmas Eve, when Giovanni picks up his rainbow of colored balls once more and offers one final performance before a statue of Our Lady and the Holy Child. And what happens next just might be a miracle. – Scholastic
