"It's much too soon for dreidels. The shofar has been blown
But look—Sukkot is coming! Let's eat—say yes by phone."
Shelley and Jimmy Mindel help to build and decorate a sukkah, prepare a holiday lunch for family and friends, and handle four unexpected (green) guests with care, resulting in a sweet mitzvah (a "good deed"). A first lost tooth and a note from the tooth fairy add an extra layer of warmth and charm to this rhyming tale—a slice-of-life story to go with your slice of noodle kugel!
Back matter includes a glossary called SWEET WORDS, filled with definitions and pronunciations of Yiddish and Hebrew words sprinkled throughout the story, such as chag sameach ("happy holiday"), nosh ("snack"), and rugelach ("a small cookie with a cream-cheese dough that is rolled around a filling, such as nuts, chocolate or jam"); an "All About Sukkot" spread in verse; sheet music for two new songs, "Sukkah-Doodle-Doo!" and "Let's Go Out to the Sukkah!" sung to the tunes of "Give My Regards to Broadway" and "Take Me Out to the Ball Game," respectively; and recipes for noodle kugel and chocolate chip mandel bread (cookies).
