A Sack Full of Feathers by Debby Waldman

A Sack Full of FeathersA Sack Full of Feathers written by Debby Waldman and illustrated by Cindy Revell, is a retelling of a Jewish folktale.  Yankel is a terrible gossip, running to share all the stories he overhears while working at his father's store.  One day the rabbi has a chat with him and teaches him a lesson using a sack full of feathers.

Anna enjoyed this book but I have to say that I think the message of this book is one that grownups need to learn even more so that children.
