Note: 
When a scarlet fever epidemic threatens to ruin their Christian neighbors' Christmas, a Jewish farming family decorates little trees for them, using the carved animals that were meant to be Hanukkah presents. A warm story with expressive illustrations, this stresses interfaith harmony. As in so many of Polacco's books, the Jewish family appears more Russian than Jewish in dress, looks, and language.
