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! I received this book free from the publisher for an honest and unbiased review.
Tamar helped with putting her Sukkah frame up. The branches covering the top of the Sukkah have leaves the color of fall. Tamar felt as though something were missing so she colored and cut out apples from paper and hung them around. But still she felt as though something were missing. She called on her friends to help her. They brought in a table, chairs and they even made a poster with a blessing. But still, there was something missing. All of her friends were there and the Sukkah looked wonderful. What do you think Tamar is missing?Author Ellie B. Gellman has created a wonderful story with friends sharing a favorite holiday. Illustrator Katherine Janus Kahn brings the story to life with bright beautiful colors and lively characters. Readers will enjoy learning about Jewish Culture. Parents and teachers can open up dialogue with students to share in the delight of a culture, holiday and its meaning.
A nice story about this Jewish holiday with a girl as the main character (finally!). In a sweet way, gets to the heart of the holiday and the meaning of friendship.
I bought this for my two year old baby. Durable, resistant, and he loved it. It's great for short attention kids.
