The Rosh Hashanah custom of tashlich involves the casting away of sins to start the New Year with a clean slate. Anna, Lincoln, and their parents have made an annual ceremony of tashlich by celebrating their accomplishments, committing to good works in the coming year, and discarding the transgressions that they have made against other people in the previous year. With an eye toward leaving a smaller ecological footprint, Anna's family does not write and burn their sins as many people do, but "deposit" them on natural items like acorn caps and stones, or bread crumbs that will be consumed by fish. The family's practice is lovely as is their exurban neighborhood, full of running streams and brightly colored leaves. It would be easy for readers to use this book as a blueprint for their own tashlich ceremony as the author even suggests urban alternatives to running streams (such as fountains and, oddly, toilets). If this book has a flaw, it is that the narrative starts without a real introduction of the theme. There is no set-up. The book starts in mid-conversation between Anna and Lincoln. The second page is the actual beginning of the book. Despite this minor problem, there will be a place for this book in libraries looking to expand their holiday collections and in religious school classrooms where the book can be incorporated into the practice of tashlich, itself.
