Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A treasured heirloom inspires a boy's reverie about his forebears in this tender picture book celebrating the strength of family ties. To Sammy Carl, nothing tastes better than cocoa sipped from his favorite cup--the copper tin one etched with the letters S and C ("S for Sammy. C for Carl . My name, my cup"). Although the cup seems to have been designed especially for him, Sammy knows it has had previous owners, beginning with his mother, Samantha Caroline, who used to drink lemonade from it. And years before that, the copper tin cup was crafted with love by Sammy's great-grandparents, Samuel and Carla. Schaefer's (The Squiggle) spare, smoothly flowing text clearly delineates the generations of one family, allowing young readers to grasp the idea of heritage. And mention of one relative's "long sea journey to the family's new home" may encourage youngsters to investigate their own roots. Identical in theme to Catherine Myler Fruisen's My Mother's Pearls (Children's Forecasts, May 15), this treatment is a bit more down-to-earth and features realistic illustrations. With soft, sometimes hazy watercolors, Fellows (The Dog Who Walked with God) creates an inviting family album, moving back through time to a 1960s kitchen, a 1930s-era farm and an early-20th-century passenger ship. His portraits exude an earnestness and warmth that have cross-generation appeal. Ages 4-8. (May) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Children's Literature
As Sammy Carl drinks cocoa from his favorite copper tin cup, he can see his initials there, "my name, my cup." But he knows that the cup was not only his. For he has been told its history. His greatgrandpapa Samuel had hammered it, and his greatgrandmama Carla had etched in the letters before giving it to his greataunt Serena to take across the ocean to her new home. His grandpa had it on the farm, with the initials for him, Sam Charles. And his mother, Samantha Caroline, knew it was hers, as she sipped her lemonade from it. The simple text clearly reflects the warmth of family connection and love, as Sammy shares his cocoa with his mother, remembering those who have gone before. Washy watercolors provide an appropriate romantic tone for this focused family history. Naturalistic and sufficiently detailed to expand significantly and sufficiently the few hints supplied by the text, the illustrations tell a typical American story. 2000, Candlewick Press, Ages 4 to 8, $15.99.

This story traces the ancestry of a simple copper cup, now so cherished by a young boy named Sammy Carl. The cup with its engraved initials of SC, was given to Sammy by his mother, Samantha Caroline, who received it from her father, Sam Charles, who received it from his big sister, Serena Carlotta, who received it from her family as she began her trip to America long ago. In sentimental tones, each owner tells of its importance in his or her life. The story emphasizes the connections in all families whether through feelings or objects. Lovely watercolor illustrations of scenes that take readers from today to yesteryear reinforce the emotion of the text. 2000, Candlewick Press, Ages 4 to 7, $15.99.

    Celebrating Heritage

    I first read this book as a teacher reviewing a new social studies curriculum. I loved the sense of history, heritage, and belonging which the book gave. The illustrations are soft, authentic, and beautifully done. I love reading it to my grandchildren and have used it as an introduction to adult presentations on genealogy and family history.
