Leah lives in an apartment building — which means there’s no room to build a sukkah. But when her friend Ari wins the Sukkot poster contest, and the prize is a sukkah, he suggests his apartment building as the perfect rooftop spot. “We can share,” he generously offers. He’s not the only one sharing, either. The whole neighborhood chips in with decorations and food, gathering happily for a celebration under the stars.
This is a lovely story about what it means to be part of a real community, a kehilla. Sweet painted illustrations add to the warm, gentle atmosphere.
With a longer text than some picture books this is recommended for ages 4 to 7.
