There is something so comforting in the fact that Lois Ehlert still gathers found objects and transforms them into beautiful artwork. It is a concept that children relate so well to because they can go and do the very same thing! Not leaving out adults who can do the very same thing!
Sitting on the porch, enjoying watermelon together, the family in this book talk about what watermelons have meant to them in their family history and even how love bloomed over watermelons. Very beautiful!
