Kayla and Kugel’s Silly Sukkot by Ann D. Koffsky
Kayla and her mischievous dog Kugel are back to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Sukkot and explain it to young children.
In the fourth Kayla and Kugel book, Kayla helps her family build and decorate their sukkah in the backyard. As her puppy playfully interferes, Kayla energetically helps with the holiday preparations while explaining to her pup how and why they build and decorate this temporary house in their backyard as part of the holiday in simple, direct language that young children will find easy to grasp. Colorful Illustrations include a comparison of an ancient hut with a modern-day succah, as well as Kugel’s puppy antics.
An end note from the author further clarifies details of this harvest time celebration, with its emphasis on giving thanks and welcoming friends, and includes suggestions for creating decorations for a sukkah.
