Note: 
The Ziz, a giant bird from Jewish legend, is a softy at heart. He confesses to accidentally doing wrong and G-d assigns him a penance - to find the hardest word. The subtitle is misleading: the story does not depict any other aspect of Yom Kippur besides the concept of forgiveness. The illustrations are confusing: some depict a modern setting, others a medieval. While preschool teachers like this book, it has many flaws.
