WHAT ARE YOUR PICKS

for the BEST OF the JEWISH NEWS Readers' Choice Awards?

Judaism. Still, it's hard not to like The

Only One Club.
It is a story about the importance of
individuality and understanding differ-
ences.
As the book begins, Jennifer's first-
grade class is making Christmas deco-
rations. Jennifer announces, "I'm
Jewish. I celebrate Hanukah."
(Unfortunately, there's absolutely
nothing else about what the holiday
celebrates — not even a one-word sen-
tence.)
Since Jennifer is the only Jewish
child in the class, her teacher, Mrs.
Matthews, suggests she make
Chanukah decorations instead.
That night, Jennifer tells her parents
about what happened at school, then
decides to make up "The Only One
Club," of which she is the only mem-
ber. She creates a circle button with
glitter, with her club name right in the
middle, and wears it to school the next
day.
Predictably, all the other children
want to be members of "The Only
One Club." One boy insists he should
be a member because he's the only one
in the
class
with
red
hair; a
girl
says she
should
be
allowed
to join
because
she's
the
only

Written for young children, The
Only One Club features terrific pic-
tures, bright and snappy. And even if
the message is nothing new, in a world
filled with intolerance and hatred, it's
a message we could all do with hearing
again and again. 0
