Patricia Polacco, My New Favorite Author

Yes, I love to read children’s books.  I have always loved to read children’s books. When we went to Colorado in 2007 my Aunt Nancy introduced me to Patricia Polacco. I am officially hooked.

She is not a typical children’s author. Her character’s come alive for both the toddler through adult. Her stories are so moving that I will often cry and laugh at the same time. I have started collecting her books because they are fast becoming part of our lives. I hope to share them with you as we read through them and I can write reviews. I will even give Miss Polacco her own category on my blog.

If you can’t wait for my recommendations, start with The Keeping Quilt, Betty Doll, Pink and Say, Just Plain Fancy, Thunder CakeWhen Lightening Comes In A Jar and Some Birthday. Because each family is different, I would suggest reading through them yourself and then decide if you want to read them to your children.  Some contain more mature themes.  I personally like the format she presents hard subject very mater of fact.   While its a good fit for our family and has opened up lots of great discussion, I realize not all families are like ours.

A complete list of books or a printable list of books is available and I encourage you to just look around her website.
