32 p.
Note: 
The author-illustrator team that has collaborated on a fine holiday series for younger children is again successful in introducing two more Jewish holidays with accuracy, reverence, and a child's point of view. Sukkot and Simchat Torah are celebrated by the narrator's family, showing how women as well as men can participate. There is an especially good explanation of the Ushpizin or biblical Sukkah guests and a brief mention of a third holiday, Shemini Atzeret. Hall's lyrical pastel illustration complement and extend the text.
