The Relatives Came

Even just flipping through this book brings a smile to my face and a warmth into my heart. This simple book with fun, fabulous illustrations shows the joys of having extended family come to visit. Some parents may not like all the illustrations, because they show some fat bellies poking out of shirts and some people in boxers as they are sleeping. I personally didn’t find the illustrations offensive at all, however.
