As Shavuot approaches, Sarah devises a plan so that she and her husband, Max, can earn some extra money and buy the ingredients for blintzes, a traditional Shavuot food. But even as Sarah and her husband squeeze time from their busy schedules and hectic lives to take on more work, their five children devise a plan of their own in this humorous, warm-hearted tale of a large, poor, Jewish farm family in the Catskills during the early 1900s. Barbara Diamond Goldin loosely based her story on a traditional Chelm fool’s tale. The full-color illustrations were created in watercolor. (Ages 4–7)
