He and his sister Naomi are all alone in the sukkah. There's nowhere in the sukkah to plug in the night light. Suddenly Daniel and Naomi hear a noise. Is it a wolf? A monster? Or worse?NOTES: SUBTITLE: A Sukkot Story
  BeitHallel | Feb 18, 2011 |
A little boy is scared to sleep outdoors in a sukkah, but with his older sister for companionship, he comes to see the stars in the sky as night lights. The new illustrations for a story first published in 1995 are gentle and comforting. ( )

Barbara Diamond Goldin's Night Lights: A Sukkot Story would be much less fearsome without Louse August's oil and pastel paintings. But as the story mostly revolves around Daniel, a young boy trying to overcome his fear of the dark, it looks pretty stark. Daniel challenges himself and his sister to sleep this time without fear in the Sukkah, unlike last year, when only grandpa's signing could help them to fall asleep. After not being able to convince his father to put real roof on their Sukkah and after having a nice warm family meal out there comes the night. These pages are filled with black ages and monstrous dogs and bear (with the text in white to provide enough contrast for legibility.) Eventually they fall asleep and all is well, and our protagonists grew a little again through their experiences. The last page has an explanation about the meaning and history of the Sukkah. The book was written for children age four and above.
