Small Town USA (4 Books) BSA115


Continuing an absolutely engaging series, the Geiserts take children through a year in a small desert town, from the hot dry summers and fall sandstorms to occasional big snows in winter. Along the way, in the simple text and calligraphic double-page spreads, they capture the lives of the townsfolk in panoramic view: the nighttime basketball; the house trailer comprising railroad cars and buses; the broken old plane restored. Other small stories are told, too: babies born, love and marriage, the joys of air conditioning. The goings-on are outlined in an endnote so children can go back to pore over tiny tucked-away images they may have missed. They can count all the buildings and many of the vehicles in a town where life may be hardscrabble but is obviously full of families that work hard and know their environment. Please click for individual book descriptions.
