Join Clara and her two grandmothers, Bubbe and Grammy, in their warm kitchens during the December holidays. Clara's experiences in December's Gift are very specific to her family: frying latkes with Bubbe and baking cookies with Grammy. Hot oil and sugary stars tell two stories of different miracles as the two grandmothers recount holiday memories and cooking traditions. Clara comes to realize how she is being given December's gift and will give both traditions to her own family someday. Clara's experiences of both cultures are rich and inviting, offering children the opportunity to see themselves reflected in her world.
