Hardest Word, by Jacqueline Julies


The Ziz, a huge bird that is clumsy but good-hearted, accidentally destroys a vegetable garden, and when he asks God for advice he learns the importance of apologizing. “A breezy plot, a whirlwind protagonist, a sense of the silly and vibrant art combine to explain a vital part of our most somber and introspective holiday… Kar-Ben deserves our thanks for publishing another appealing gem.” -AJL Newsletter, “The delightful tale, featuring a loveable, klutzy bird teaching the essential lessons of the High Holidays, is just perfect… Ms. Kahn’s big, bold, humorous illustrations are just wonderful. This book is a must! ” –San Diego Jewish Times, “Children and adults alike will enjoy this exceptionally unique Yom Kippur story.” –The Kansas City Jewish Chronicle. Paperback, 32 pages, isbn 9781580130283
