Author: Susan Chodakiewitz
Title: Too Many Visitors for One Little House
Genre: Children’s Picture Book
The crabby neighbors of El Camino can’t bear all the music, fun and laughter at the house of the new family on the block as aunts, uncles, cousins and grannies arrive for a big noisy reunion. Too Many Visitors for One Little House is a joyful story about the importance of being included.
This book took me back to my old children’s picture book days and how I miss writing them! As a children’s book author (many moons ago), I can relate to Susan in many ways. She has a message and uses the whimsicalness of a children’s book to do it. So enjoyable!
Ever had snotty neighbors? Or better yet, have you been that snotty neighbor where everything the other neighbors are doing that changes the way you have been living up to that point is driving you up the wall? Susan Chodakiewitz’s Too Many Visitors for One Little House could have been written about me! Susan’s message rings loud and clear: if you can’t beat’em, join’em!
The illustrations by Veronica Walsh were beautifully displayed with whimsey and charm which makes reading to your toddler even more enjoyable.
You’ll fully enjoy this cute little picture book. Highly recommended!
