Format: Paperback
Nursery school was lots of fun and Sadie smiled as she filed into Temple Beth El with her friends. There were lots of things to do and she "loved the Hebrew songs they sang during music," playing with blocks, climbing on the gym, and stacking up the building blocks. The thing she loved the most was her teacher, Morah Sarah. During circle time she announced that Shavuot was coming up and told them that it was "the day the Jewish people received the Ten Commandments."

It was the big day that Moses climbed all the way up Mt. Sinai and didn't come back down for forty days. Oh, and he "was carrying two tablets with God's law." Morah Sarah told them that they'd start preparing for Shavuot and when they had completed all their activities Rabbi Jamie would guide them on their own hike up on their "own Mt. Sinai." Sadie put her hand to her mouth and started to get concerned. Mt. Sinai was a BIG mountain and there was no way she could hike up there ... besides, she couldn't stand hiking. How could she possibly get out of climbing that mountain?

This is an adorable story about Sadie, a little girl who is afraid of climbing "Mt. Sinai." Naturally many small children take things literally and Sadie was no exception. Climbing Mt. Sinai absolutely petrified her and she was positive she'd be direly ill by the end of the week, but she eventually realized that "anyone can climb high enough to reach God." I especially enjoyed seeing how Morah Sarah prepared the children for Shavuot by creating walking sticks, teaching them the Commandments, and making blintzes. The artwork meshes well with the tale and captures both the excitement of the holiday and Sadie's trepidation. This would be an excellent book to use to begin a young child's religious education or to read during circle or story time!

When Sadie's teacher announces to her class how they will be celebrating Shavuot she pictures herself not participating. Their class will be walking up a mountain of their own to demonstrate to them what it was like for Moses who climbed Mt. Sinai to obtain the Ten Commandments. Sadie thinks that the class will be climbing a big mountain like she thought that Moses did and she doesn't think that she can do that. When Friday comes, which is the day her class is supposed to climb the mountain, she learns the truth about the mountain that they will be climbing and whether she can accomplish climbing it or not.

This book is made for ages 2-6 and grades Pre-K- through first grade. I liked how the teacher in the story incorporated an arts and craft idea into their time of Shavuot preparation because the arts and craft item was used during the day that the class climbed their mountain. I think it would be good for teachers to often use the very ideas in the book for their own classes when teaching them about Shavuot.
