This is a story about two kids whose parents are divorced so they spend the summer with their dad and gramma in Wilmington They are dirt poor but their dad shows them this magic rock and the rock helps bring good luck on the family At the end of the story the rock is gone and the kids realize the magic is in them and not the rock I really enjoyed the illustrations in this book because they are different than most I also like how they portrayed a family with divorced parents because that is This is a story about two kids whose parents are divorced so they spend the summer with their dad and gramma in Wilmington They are dirt poor but their dad shows them this magic rock and the rock helps bring good luck on the family At the end of the story the rock is gone and the kids realize the magic is in them and not the rock I really enjoyed the illustrations in this book because they are different than most I also like how they portrayed a family with divorced parents because that is so real in our world today.I would keep this book on my shelf in my class I doubt I would read it out loud but it would be a good book for free time reading Patricia Polacco is a woman who has experienced so much in her life Each book is a personal narrative of different events or people who have impacted her In this story she pays tribute to her father, a quirky traveling salesman who struggles to get by financially This was not my favorite Patricia Polacco story but still an entertaining read. This book has a lot of text, so it would take a while to read to a class It would be a great starting point for a writer s workshop for the students to write about themselves This is a good story about a family, job loss, a magic rock, and love.
