When Emma sets out to make a cookie family with Grandma and Sam, the happy afternoon suddenly turns sad. The cookies are meant to look like her family, but Emma's is the only one with dark hair and eyes. She doesn't look like the others; does that mean she doesn't belong? In this tender story, Emma learns that there are many ways to come together and form a family.
