The Relatives Came

The Relatives Came
by Cythia Rylant; Bradury Press 1985

It was the summer of the year when the relatives came. The relatives stayed for weeks and weeks. They helped tend the garden and fixed the broken things. They ate up the strawberries and melons. We were always so busy hugging and eating and breathing together.

My Review: This is such an intriguing book to me. The one thing I love about it is the illustrations. The pictures are all in color pencil. The faces and the scenery are so serial. Its a cute book about love and family.
