Note: 
The teachings of the Baal Shem Tov are woven into this satisfying folktale about tashlikh and teshuvah. Not until his precious children are threatened by a fearsome sea monster composed of all the sins he has carelessly tossed away, does Gershon truly repent. The moody watercolors are the perfect companions to a story that personifies abstract concepts in a way that makes them meaningful to primary grade children.
