Product Description

Rebecca Rubin is a lively nine-year-old girl growing up in a big Jewish family in New York City in 1914. She dreams of becoming an actress, but her parents and grandparents have traditional ideas and don't think young ladies should perform. When Rebecca learns that her cousins in Russia are in great danger and must escape to America, she puts on a show to raise money—until her disapproving grandmother steps in. Unexpectedly, Rebecca finds another way to earn money. But for her plan to work, she'll have to keep it a secret. Includes an illustrated "Looking Back" essay about Jewish immigration and culture. Author: Jacqueline Dembar Greene. Paperback or Hardcover. 96 pages.

First in a series of six historical books filled with inspiring lessons of compassion, courage, and friendship. Rebecca’s entire book set includes: Meet Rebecca, Rebecca and Ana, Candlelight for Rebecca, Rebecca and the Movies, Rebecca to the Rescue, and Changes for Rebecca.
