Favorite Author: Patricia Polacco

Updated: Oct 7, 2019

If you ever see a book by this author, just pick it up. She is a much loved author here at Our House. Today I re-read this book to my little daughters before quiet time and even though I have read it countless time, I still cried at the end.

Whenever Mary Ellen needed Betty Doll, she was there. Betty Doll saw her through happy and sad times, thunderstorms and parties, weddings and births. Now, when Mary Ellen’s daughter Trisha needs Betty Doll most, she rediscovers the sweet old doll, along with a letter written by her mother before she died. This touching story is a reminder of the power of a mother’s love and the joy of life’s precious moments.

Other books of hers that will always make me cry are Pink and Say and Junkyard Wonders. All of them are listed under my read aloud favorites.
