Dear Santa, Love, Rachel Rosenstein + Giveaway

#RachelRosenstein #XmasEnvy #Holidays #Giveaway #ad

The holiday season is upon us and that means an influx of great holiday books that will hit the shelves! In our home, we love picture book, especially with our younger kids. I recently discovered a great picture book that is now available online and in stores and is entitled, Dear Santa, Love, Rachel Rosenstein. Dear Santa, Love, Rachel Rosenstein was written by Amanda Peet and Andrea Troyer and illustrated by Christine Davenier. It was released on October 20th and is ideal for children ages 3-7.


Actress Amanda Peet brings us a hilarious holiday drama in a story that every Jewish family will relate to and appreciate.

Rachel Rosenstein wonders why Santa Claus never visits her house. But this year is going to be different–even though her family is Jewish and doesn’t observe Christmas. With hilarious and heartwarming mishaps, Rachel visitsSanta at the mall with her special request, writes a letter to Santa explaining her cause, and clandestinely decorates the house on Christmas Eve (right down to latkes for the reindeer). And while Rachel may wrestle with her culture, customs, and love of sparkly Christmas ornaments, she also comes away with a brighter understanding of her own identity and of the gift of friends and family.
