In Our Mothers’ House by Patricia Polacco (6-8)

In Our Mothers’ House by popular, award-winning author/illustrator Patricia Polacco (Babushka’s Doll, Clara and Davie, Chicken Sunday, Just Plain Fancy, Mrs. Katz and Tush, Pink and Say), a daughter recalls life in Marmee and Meema’s house. Though they are definitely different from other families in the neighborhood—some of which don’t accept them—they are a family full of love, and they gain immeasurable strength from living by their own rules and loving each other no matter what. Polacco is no stranger to celebrating the different, diverse, and nontraditional in her bestselling, memorable books, and this is no exception. It is sure to be a welcome addition to any home library!

For ages 6-8.
