Children's Literature
Based loosely on a Hasidic folk tale, this sweet-natured story is a good way to get some cross-cultural education into your child-care center or elementary school. A mythical bird called the Ziz inadvertently wreaks havoc with the village children's vegetable garden. How will they decorate their sukkah, or ceremonial huts? The Ziz has a talk with God, who instructs him to search the world over for the hardest word. That word turns out to be "sorry," and the Ziz finds he cannot only be forgiven, he can actually try to make up for the wrong he has done. Kahn's goofy illustrations show the Ziz as awkward and gangly and sometimes unable to help himself. Any kid who has ever broken a dish or sent a baseball through a window will identify. 2001, Kar-Ben Copies, $17.95 and $6.95. Ages 3 to 7. Reviewer:Donna Freedman
