Description

The first sights of fall arrive--pumpkins, gourds, and colorful leaves--and that means that Sukkot is almost here. Sukkot is the Jewish holiday celebrating the fall harvest and commemorating the time when the children of Israel spent forty years wandering the desert and living in temporary shelters (rebuilt as a sukkah during Sukkot). Soft illustrations and thoughtful gentle text pair for a charming invitation for children to celebrate the joyful holiday.

Review quote

"The bucolic setting and the palpable excitement of the final pages, which build to an outdoor sleepover in the sukkah 'with moonbeams for light, ' create a powerful sense of anticipation that should easily leave readers looking forward to their own families' festivities." Publishers Weekly, June 10, 2016
