Is Christmas a confusing time for your kids too? Most American kids go through some curiosity / confusion and maybe even some jealousy over Christmas in America. This book is for you and your kids to open up a valuable discussion about what it means to be Jewish in America where Christmas predominates during the month of December.
Rachel Rosenstein is determined to celebrate Christmas this year and the fact that her family is Jewish is not going to stop her. In a series of hilarious and heartwarming mishaps, Rachel writes a letter to Santa explaining her cause, pays him a visit at the mall, and covertly decorates her house on Christmas Eve (right down to latkes for Santa and his reindeer). And while Rachel may wrestle with her culture, customs, and love of sparkly Christmas ornaments, she also comes away with a brighter understanding of her own identity and of the gift of friends and family.
