East Texas, the 1930s—the Great Depression. Award-winning author Jonah Winter's father grew up with seven siblings in a tiny house on the edge of town. In this picture book, Winter shares his family history in a lyrical text that is clear, honest, and utterly accessible to young readers, accompanied by Kimberly Bulcken Root's rich, gorgeous illustrations. Here is a celebration of family and of making do with what you have—a wonderful classroom book that's also perfect for children and parents to share.
Kimberly Bulcken Root has illustrated over fifteen books for children, most recently, "Birdie's Lighthouse". She and her husband, illustrator Barry Root, live with their children in Quarryfield, Pennsylvania.
