I received complimentary copies.

Cassandra's Review-  Two excellent and very informative books that will help your little one learn all about Sukkot.  The illustrations are really enjoyable.  My children love learning and sharing holiday fun, even if you are not familiar or have never practiced this holiday, it is still super fun to try.
