Sonia Manzano (Maria from Sesame Street) celebrates the spirit of the holiday with a story that comes alive with the people of the city and the lesson that comes when an oversized roast doesn't fit in a small apartment oven.
In the beginning, many of characters are frustrated by the demands and disappointments that often accompany the holidays.
Creative problem solving and the cooperation of the local pizzeria owner helps to save the cooking crisis.
But soon it is the smell of the cooked roast that draws people away from their worries and distractions and brings them together.
Marjorie Priceman's illustrations bring alive the story and adds both color and a magical quality to this delightful story.
May each and everyone of you find a way to celebrate the holiday with family and friends and community and with what is important - friendship and love and food.
Happy Holidays to everyone!
