Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1--As the information given is minimal, this book works best for those already familiar with the Jewish holiday. With simple text and crisp, color photographs, Kropf explains that Sukkot is a harvest festival. Children are shown helping to build a sukkah, to decorate it, and to eat inside it. They also make one for their classroom and one for their toys. Directions for the mini sukkah and the holiday blessings are appended. There is no explanation of why one builds a sukkah, or how the holiday itself is observed, except in a note on the verso of the title page that can be easily overlooked. However, as there are few books on Sukkot, religious schools and libraries serving large Jewish populations may want to consider adding this title.--Amy Lilien-Harper, The Ferguson Library, Stamford, CT

From Booklist

PreS-Gr. 2. Bright, vivacious photographs capture exuberant preschoolers preparing for Sukkoth, the Jewish fall harvest festival. Eager children choose apples and pumpkins, then string beads and leaves, decorating the hut, or sukkah, the holiday's prominent symbol, which calls to mind farmers' temporary dwellings during ancient harvests. The youngsters are also seen dancing and playing together within the festively decorated shelter. Brief text captions the energetic photos and conveys the meaning of the symbolic holiday fruits. The festival's traditional blessings conclude this well-focused primer for Judaica collections. Ellen Mandel

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My grandson loved this book. His parents especially liked that there were real children used to illustrate this book. Young children really enjoy books that show other little children. It was the perfect purchase for Sukkot. I also gave him a pretend lulav and etrog to help celebrate the holiday.
