An award-winning story that's fast becoming a classic
Soothing, enchanting, a lyrical prose poem that's a perfect "good-night" story: that's the charm and appeal of Nancy Hundal's popular I Heard My Mother Call My Name, now available in a popular trade paperback format.
Awarded the 1990 Sheila A. Egoff Children's Book Prize, this intimate story of the images and sensations of a child's view of twilight falling on her neighborhood is made even more magical by Laura Fernandez's haunting, luminous illustrations. A true "comfort" story that improves with every telling, this warm, nostalgic book is wonderful for a child's read-alone pleasure, or to share with someone special.
