It's time for a family reunion! when Tricia's aunts, uncles, and cousins arrive at her house for an annual family reunion, the fun really begins. And this year, gramma has promised to teach the children something wonderful -- how to catch "lightning" in a jar. With so many people and so much love, this family reunion will certainly prove to be the most memorable one yet.
Inspired by her own family, Patricia Polacco beautifully depicts an endearing family reunion that will surely have readers -- young and old -- yearning to spend quality time with their family.
"Polacco's nostalgic pencil and watercolor illustrations chronicle the day's frolics, all the way up to its buggy climax. She then leaves the Greatest Generation behind for an instructive final act, about a new reunion and 'a new crop of children': 'I'll send them home with full bellies, tired bones and flickering jars in their laps. Their hearts will be overflowing. Full of lightning, put there by folks who loved them even before they were born.'" -- Paul Hughes, Amazon.com Reviews
