Review
Tashlich, a Jewish custom performed during the high holidays, symbolizes the throwing away of last year's sins by discarding crumbs into a body of water. On the afternoon of Rosh Hashanah, Annie, who's "in charge" this year, creates a special outing for her family where they will perform the ritual and a few added observances. Following her lead, they hike through the woods and stop at different locations along the trail to remember the good and bad of the past year, make a promise to keep in the new year and then eat apples dipped in honey to welcome the beginning of a sweet year to come. The long yet straightforward narrative depicts an environmentally conscious, traditional family eager to share the acknowledgement of their mistakes and good memories. Annie's likable bossiness helps the necessarily explicative text go down easy. Gouache on textured paper emulate pointillism, depicting fall foliage dominated by auburn, brown and green colors. An author's note encourages families to find unique ways to practice this low-impact yet spiritually rich custom. (Picture book/religion. 5-8)(Kirkus Reviews, July 1, 2010)
