Book Review: Tamar's Sukkah by Ellie B. Gellman, Illustrated by Katherine Janus Kahn

*****This review is meant for parents, teachers, and other people that work with children to read.*****

Tamar helped to build a sukkah but it was missing something. She figures out something that is missing and gets some help from a friend to hang the items.  Something is still not quite right with the Sukkah though. Tamar's friend knows about something else that is missing but he also needs to get help with that. Even when that is complete the Sukkah still doesn't feel complete. More friends are asked to help and finally the Sukkah is complete when everything and everyone has a place in it!

I like how this story illustrates and explains what (and who) is needed in the Sukkah and how it is great to have a lot of help from friends in putting it together...the building of the inside of the Sukkah brought together many friends! This showed how fun that was with Tamar and her friends and it should be fun in real life too! In my opinion, the people that come together under the Sukkah are the most important ingredient!

Age Level: 3-8
