Book Review #564
Our Gracie Aunt by Jacqueline Woodson, illustrated by Jon J. Muth
Rating: three stars (out of four)

This book had really sweet sentiments, I liked how the message wasn't watered down just because it was a children's book.  At the same time though, I did feel like it was a little serious for a picture book.  But I do think there are kids who are in the same predicament as the two in this story and they might take comfort in reading this book.  I enjoyed looking at the illustrations as well.  I would recommend, but not if you are looking for something fun and light.
