Title: Home in the Woods
Author: Eliza Wheeler
Imagine being a 6-year-old during the Great Depression. Marvel and her 7 siblings have lost their father. Her family is homeless until her mom finds shelter in an abandoned shack in the woods. Life looks bleak until Marvel's family discover unexpected sources of food, fuel and entertainment. Hopeless circumstances give way to joy as this family is knit together despite overwhelming challenges.
Inspired by the childhood of the author's grandmother, this is a great picture book to read aloud to your littles. They may see their surroundings with new eyes, especially during this pandemic.
