Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Rebecca Rubin, a Jewish-American girl living in New York City in 1914, loves celebrating Hanukah with her family, but her teacher, Miss Malone, assigns the class to make Christmas decorations. Even though Miss Malone tells Rebecca that Christmas is a national holiday, Rebecca wonders whether it is wrong to make Christmas decorations. What will her family think? Will her grandmother, Bubba, disapprove of the centerpiece that Rebecca worked so hard to create, and does Rebecca's Jewish faith really make her less American than her classmates? Just when Rebecca begins to doubt the strength of her own patriotism, she realizes the true spirit of the holiday season is caring and loving family and friends. Rebecca takes pride in creating Hanukah presents for her family. In this heart-warming story from the "American Girl" series, Rebecca comes to terms with her Jewish faith and learns how to celebrate the holiday season by reaching out to neighbors and friends in need. Reviewer: Suzanna E. Henshon, Ph.D.
