PreSchool-K-Hillel loves to build houses. However, he can't light Hanukkah candles in his cardboard-box house because they might start a fire, and his Purim house costume is ruined by the rain. This pattern continues throughout the year-each of his homemade dwellings is inappropriate for each Jewish holiday for a different reason. At last Sukkot arrives. He is overjoyed, because an essential part of its celebration is to build a sukkah, or small outdoor house. Hillel is an appealing preschooler who is determined to accomplish his goal. His family is an observant one-the full-color, average-quality illustrations show the boy and his dad with their heads covered. This book does not explain the Jewish holidays; rather, it is a warm slice of life for those already familiar with these observances.

Hillel loves to build houses -- tree houses, pillow forts, and closet hideaways. But he can't seem to find the right time to celebrate in one of his houses until fall comes, bringing the Jewish holiday of Sukkot. Hillel Builds A House is a full color picturebook trip through the Jewish year. As fanciful and joyful as it is a delight. Ideal for ages 3-7. -- Midwest Book Review
