The excitement of an upcoming festival builds as a family observes the seasonal changes and makes preparations together, in Is It Sukkot Yet?, by Chris Barash. Simple illustrations by Alessandra Psacharopulo combine nature and tradition, all aglow in fall colors. Flowing rhymes that beg to be read aloud precede the refrain “Sukkot is on its way,” encouraging chants or call and response as a growing sense of wonder and anticipation captures the joy surrounding a Sukkot feast. Through the book’s light and lyrical tone, children everywhere can have a new appreciation for this Jewish holiday.
