Reviews

"Drawing on his childhood in Heflin, AL, the author splendidly recreates these nostalgic scenes, carefully bringing the memories to life by describing the sunny kitchen, the crunch of gravel under bicycle wheels, and the sweet aroma of the cakes. The brilliant watercolor paintings glow with light and idyllically capture the world of yesteryear."--School Library Journal
"Illustrator Soentpiet notes that his model is Norman Rockwell, and this picture book, set in rural Alabama in 1964, certainly evokes Rockwell's idyllic visions of family togetherness... the pictures are gorgeous, and the bond between child and grandparent is timeless."--Booklist
"The impeccably rendered paintings illustrate with astonishing historical accuracy...this nostalgic look back offers up the childhood many of us wish we'd had."--Kirkus Reviews
