About This Book
Watch the Video Book Trailer.
In this Caldecott-winning title with art by Chris Raschka, an exuberant, imaginative little girl explains how she spends her time with her grandparents while her parents are at work. Raschka's style resembles the spontaneous drawings of children, perfectly mirroring the guileless young narrator's exuberant voice. White space balances the density of the layered colors, creating a visual experience that is surprisingly sophisticated.
"With a few energetic lines, Raschka suggests a world filled with affection and humor," said Award Committee Chair Gratia Banta. "The richly textured tones of these expressive illustrations convey the emotional warmth of the intergenerational connection."
