9781929628070: The Sukkah That I Built

Shortly after the awe-inspiring days of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, we celebrate the joyous holiday of Sukkos. On this yom tov, we eat in a sukkah to remember the temporary dwellings of the Jewish people during the Exodus from Egypt.

In The Sukkah that I Built, a young child joins in the rollicking fun of hammering the walls, climbing the ladder and putting schach on the family sukkah. Set to a "House that Jack Built" refrain, the reader builds his vocabulary along with the building of the sukkah! Each "new" word appears in a different color, highlighting the key words for easy recognition by the young, beginning reader.

Bold, colorful illustrations with all the objects clearly positioned on every page make this book a unique learning experience! Perfect for reading aloud, The Sukkah that I Built teaches young children both sequencing and "how to build a sukkah." Sure to become a family favorite at Sukkos time

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. In this variation of "The House That Jack Built," a young boy describes the sukkah that he assembled. Successive verses describe the ladder, hammer, nails, boards, poles, and branches he uses to create this outdoor eating booth, which will be used by his family during the Jewish harvest festival of Sukkot. Colorful, humorous illustrations also show the child's family and leave little doubt that they all helped with the construction. Vorst's simple, rhyming text is just the right length for wiggly young religious-school audiences, and it offers both enough basic vocabulary and information to help young children understand the topic. A glossary and more details about this festival are useful additions to a fine choice for religious school collections and for other libraries with a demand for books on Sukkoth. Kay Weisman
