Pictures from Our Vacation

Out of stock
The tiny cameras took tiny pictures that shot out right away. We could watch the pictures appear, then peel off the backs. . . . Our mom gave us notebooks to stick them in." A brother and sister try to document their trip to the family farm, but when they look at their photographs-of the back of Dad's head, a green hill, sitting in a chair in the rain-they realize the photos didn't really capture their whole vacation. What about how it felt to roll down the hill or to listen to all those family stories? Full-color illustrations. A 2008 Charlotte Zolotow Honor Book
