    Beautiful watercolor illustrations and rich, descriptive vocabul

    Beautiful watercolor illustrations and rich, descriptive vocabulary help to create wonderfully visual images as the story of an older brother and younger sister unfolds. Realistic fiction that is appealing to all ages and one that parents and grandparents will enjoy sharing as well. As an added bonus a recipe for using mama's tomatoes is included. Families can cook, making their own special memories. Delightful story! Great for teachers and libraries, too.
