Synopsis

Family Reunion by QUATTLEBAUM

This delightful book contains fifteen poems that tell the story of a weeklong family reunion through the eyes of Jodie, a 10-year-old girl. From the original invitation and the drive there to listening to family stories and helping with a barbecue, and finally going home again, Jodie relates in verse form all the experiences she shares with her family at the reunion.Author Mary Quattlebaum has included a variety of poetic forms, including free verse, a haiku, a sonnet, a ballad, and more, making this a rich reading experience for young readers and their families. Andrea Shine's richly colored watercolor illustrations, overlaid with bits of cut paper, capture the excitement and fun of the family gathering. Great for reading aloud, the poems in Family Reunion can be shared with the whole family.
