A preschool class demonstrates the steps of sukkah-building to celebrate the fall harvest festival of Sukkot. 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. Blessings in Hebrew and English are included.
“Young children will easily see themselves in these photos and they remind a parent of all the pleasure that comes when youngsters are part of the holiday celebrations.” –Chicago Jewish Star
“The photographs show real children celebrating sukkot… This would be a perfect introductory book to the holiday.” –The National Jewish Post & Opinion: Indianapolis
