Blackout - John Rocco
This was an award winning book this year and after I read it I surely know why. It is a beautiful picture book that really pulls at the heartstrings. it is the story of a hot summer day when there really wa a blackout. A family who was too busy to really connect, a whole city, perhaps, was forced to slow down and just be with one another. I know there are many times in my life when this feels Ike just such a good idea, but I, too, often just don't take the time to slow down. What a treasure that kind of time is, self imposed or not. LOVED this award winner by John Rocco.
