Note: 
The author of a previous Sydney Taylor Book Award for Younger Readers again draws on childhood memories to create a story about Jewish immigrants living on New York's Lower East Side. Rivka's efforts to convince her family and their rabbi that Thanksgiving is indeed a holiday that Jews should celebrate are related with warmth, respect, and an understanding of the relevance of this most American holiday to Jewish tradition and history. The softly colored illustrations reflect the ambience of the story, imbuing it with atmosphere and portraying its characters with affection and humor.
