Title: The Best Sukkot Pumpkin Ever
Author: Laya Steinberg
Illustrations: Colleen Madden
Publisher: Kar-Ben Publishing
Winter is around the corner and before the frost comes Jared has volunteered to help pick pumpkins. The more he finds the more the local soup kitchen will receive. By helping the soup kitchen, Jared learned they will be taking part in tikkun olam, which is repairing the world. Jared’s experience was that he donated his idea of a perfect pumpkin for decoration, a small one for soup and a mushy one would be perfect for compost. He managed to salvage some seeds from it.
Sukkot is the Jewish harvest holiday that commemorates the forty years the Israelites wandered in the desert and lived in temporary shelters. Author Laya Steinberg and illustrator Colleen Madden have created a delightful story full of colorful pictures that will engage children to be mindful of those who have less and to want to help within their own community.
