A Sukkot Story By Eric A. Kimmel Illustrated by: Katya Krenina (32 Pages)Ages 4-7 Publisher: Holiday House, 2008
It was the season of Sukkot, the Jewish harvest festival. Two brothers each built a sukkah to celebrate and share the gifts of the earth. One brother was very rich; he built a sukkah of great riches and splendor. He invited only the richest guests to celebrate and share with him. The other brother was very poor. He built a sukkah of found materials and leftover goods, yet he invited all to share the holiday with him. When three mysterious guests visit each brother on Sukkot, they leave a special blessing behind a blessing that touches not the beauty of the sukkah, but the generosity of the heart.
