These rainy Texas days are bringing back many memories in our not so distant past, and I am SO grateful to have found this wordless picture book at my library!
Sometimes pictures are worth a thousand words... other times pictures express an experience - when you have no words at all.
Thank you, Alvaro F. Villa, for painting what it is like to watch the weather, pack up your home, wait with bated breath, and return.
Thank you, most of all, for painting what is like to rebuild your community and carry on.
I have been the child who packed a box to evacuate, the neighbor who cleared out wet sheetrock, and the granddaughter who lost a beloved family home.
This book, like many others, is a story starter. Young and old can recall their own experiences as they flip through each page. And I hope that every story ends like this one, when hope is restored because you are all together, safe and sound.
