Being the best and the bravest wasn't only an outside, shiny-shield thing. It was an on-the-inside thing too. And that's what he had to show Hannah.

More than anything, Judah wants to be a good big brother to his baby sister, Hannah. He even uses his new Maccabee shield to protect her from danger!

On the last day of Hanukkah, during a visit to the doctor, Judah refuses to have his shot. Surely, his shield can protect him from germs, too!
