The Only One Club is a sweet, if slightly didactic, story about inclusivity. The only Jewish girl in her class is assigned to make Hanukkah crafts as her classmates make Christmas decorations. She decides to put herself into the Only One Club. When everyone wants to join, she finds something unique about each friend, and even her teacher. The illustrations are straightforward.
