How did Patricia Polacco become a writer? A perfect companion to the classic Thank Yo. Polacco's colorful illustrations are engaging, with pencil lines used in the characters' facial expressions to evoke a range of emotion, from Miss Keller's birdlike scrutiny to Trisha's anxiety and heartbreaking grief. The middle school setting may make this text-heavy picture book better suited for independent reading or for sharing with older children.

I am collecting Patricia Polacco books for my children. We received our first, "bun bun button" in the mail through a program called Books from Birth that is sponsored by Dolly Parton.

About Patricia Polacco. I was born in Lansing, Michigan in 1944. You probably have noticed that in almost every book that I write there is a very young person who is interacting with an elderly person. Soon after my birth I lived in Williamston, Michigan and then moved onto my grandparents farm in Union City, Michigan. having the wonder of knowing both children and elderly people. The respect that I learned as a very young person certainly carried over into my life in later years.
