"a lovely and pointed reminder that America is a land of many 'great holidays.'"-- Publishers Weekly 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. "will help introduce young readers to other cultures while allowing them to preserve the magic of their own."-- Booklist "There's lots of humor in the text ("Dear Santa...I know that you are a fair person and will not mind that I am Jewish. After all so was Jesus, at least on his mother's side") and in the lively, scribbly, colorful illustrations. But the authors wisely don't gloss over Rachel's feelings--which can be common for anyone who doesn't celebrate Christmas that time of year."-- The Horn Book From the Hardcover edition.
