Ma Dear's Old Green House

Written By Denise Lewis Patrick

Illustrated By Sonia Lynn Patrick

Reading Level: Ages 4-8; Hardcover: 32 Page

Reviews

An African-American child reminisces about happy, fun-filled summers at her grandmother's house. She describes special times spent on Ma Dear's porch, playing hide-and-seek, watching cars go by, and eating "messy watermelons/with lots of salt/seeing who could spit seeds/the farthest." She also recalls learning to ride a bicycle and snuggling up in bed with cousins and whispering all night long. Sadler's colorful acrylic scratchboard images are a wonderful complement to the text, filling the pages with the exuberance of youth and the essence of those summer days. This heartwarming story is just right for intergenerational sharing and is sure to evoke family memories. School Library Journal
