Reviews

"Many Jewish kids in America can probably relate to Amanda Peet's new children's book."--Time.com

"It's not just for kids: Any grown-ups who remember what it's like being a Jewish kid when everyone else seems to be caroling around Christmas trees and putting out cookies for Santa will love it, too."--Bustle.com "Packs a lesson in cultural understanding. --The Chicago Tribune "Will help introduce young readers to other cultures while allowing them to preserve the magic of their own."--Booklist

"Actress Peet and her friend/coauthor Troyer, both newcomers to children's books, handle Rachel's obsession and her family's strong sense of religious identity with equal empathy and humor."--Publishers Weekly "There's lots of humor in the text 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, a notion that steers the text toward a happy, multi-culti ending."--The Horn Book

"Bright watercolors depict Rachel and her family as a loving group, surrounded by commercial trappings of the season."--School Library Journal
