I really wish books about religion would mention on the cover that they are a book about whatever religion they are describing.

This book was well written and informative about Shavuot, a Jewish celebration.

My son loved it! Right after we finished, he asked to read it again (which we did). He especially liked all Sadie's reasons she wouldn't be able to go on the hike. And now we can't wait to findoour own Mount Sinai to climb for Shavuot.
