By: Molly Beth Griffin / Illustrated by: Anait Semirdzhyan

How can it be the holidays if everyone isn't together?

One year, a storm prevents all the relatives from coming to visit for the holidays. No Grandma, no aunts, no uncles, no cousins. No fun! This family will have to adapt their traditions to versions that can be done on a smaller scale—a simpler stew dinner, a hike in the snow, and a game of cards instead of rowdy charades. Navigating disappointment with mindfulness and gratitude, the family pieces together a holiday full of new traditions, while still acknowledging that it's okay to miss the old ones.
