This is a brand new book- just out in 2013. I am often disappointed in newer books because I feel that so many of them lack a good, wholesome story. This book took me by surprise as the story captured our attention (kids ages 9, 8 and 6), taught us a little history and the artwork is beautiful. The book tells the story of a little girl visiting with her great grandpa as he tells her the story of his coming to America from Italy. A touching story. I would highly recommend this book!
