Kayla's dog Kugel is a big help as Kayla sets the table for Shabbat . . . despite a few paw prints on the tablecloth, a missing Kiddush cup, and other mishaps. When they're done, even Kugel knows that a beautiful Shabbat needs one more thing family!

An author note at the end explains the values of shalom bayit (creating peace in the home), and hiddur mitzvah (using beauty to enhance a religious practice), and provides discussion prompts for readers.
