With great art, this is a heart-warming story about seeing in others both the feelings of separation and uniqueness that we all feel. This is great for both one's own kids and the classroom.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

In The Only One Club, Jennifer Jacobs feels left out and very different from everyone else. She is Jewish and her class is making Christmas decorations. Her teacher lets her make something for the holiday she celebrates, Hanukkah, and she decides to form a club for herself because she is the 'only one'. Now the others feel left out - until they all figure out what is unique and special about each one of them. What a wonderful way to illustrate to children how truly special and one of a kind they are! I plan to use this book with my elementary school students who need a boost with their self-esteem!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

In Jennifer Jacobs, the founder of THE ONLY ONE CLUB, author Jane Naliboff has created a winning character that young readers of all cultures will relate to. Jennifer is the only Jewish student in her class - the only one who celebrates Hanukah. 'That must make you feel special,' her father tells her - and it does. She decides to celebrate her uniqueness by starting THE ONLY ONE CLUB - of which she, Jennifer, will be the sole member. Or so she thinks. This delightful book and its memorable heroine gently and playfully shows young readers that even our differences can connect us - and that being a member of THE ONLY ONE CLUB does not have to be lonely.Was this review helpful?
