Charlotte, whose family is Jewish, has trouble adjusting to life in a French village, especially since she speaks little French, until she gets the idea at Christmastime of sharing the holiday with Colette, a classmate whose family is poor.

Orca Book Publishers
Charlotte, a young Jewish girl, is fascinated by Christmas. By coming to the aid of a friend she gets the chance to participate in the traditions.
When Charlotte and her family move to France, there is a lot to adjust to. Because she can't speak French, Charlotte is put in the lowest grade, which she doesn't like. And what she dislikes the most is when Colette, a girl in her class, calls her a "foreigner." But the holidays are coming, and Charlotte is fascinated by the preparations being made for Christmas—"Noël" in French. To her disappointment, her mother tells her that this is not for their family, they will have Chanukah instead. But when Charlotte learns that Colette's family will miss Christmas too, not because they are Jewish but because they are poor, she puts aside her hurt feelings and convinces her parents that they should give Christmas to Colette's family, as a gift.
