Join this big-hearted family in preparations for Shavuot, the Jewish holiday celebrating the day Moses received the Ten Commandments, and discover as they do—in a roundabout way that's sure to spark giggles—the true meaning of cooperation.
 
For A Mountain of Blintzes, the author chose to set the story in the Catskills Mountains of New York in the 1920s because when he was a boy, her father lived on a farm in the Catskills with his two brothers, two sisters, and their parents, Sarah and Harry.
