The Horn Book Guide

Cover: Sammy Spider's First Shavuot

Spider Sammy learns about the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. During the Shapiro family’s preparations, curious Sammy is almost burnt by cooking oil, splashed with strawberry juice, and covered with pollen while he learns about such customs as making blintzes. The brightly colored but awkward collage illustrations include some inconsistencies. Mrs. Shapiro’s blintz recipe is appended.
