The Naming of Tishkin Silk

If you love Patrician MacLachlan and Katherine Paterson you will welcome Glenda Millard and her terrific series about the Silk family Meet young Griffin Silk who was the last Silk to be born after a whole rainbow of sisters. They even put a period after his name. But a new little Silk was born and Griffin became a comma. He wasn't entirely happy with that and he had some uncomfortable feelings and thoughts that he's held tightly the whole four months his mother has been away. In the midst of school bullying and loss, the Silk family shines forth. Grandmother Nell with her steady, all-seeing heart is there to love and reassure and brighten each day with appreciation and good cheer. The Rainbow Girls are full of life and curiosity. Griffin meets a princess on his way home from school after a particularly bad day and he learns that sometimes words aren't necessary when two hearts speak the same language of understanding and forgiveness. Refreshing. Rich. Heartwarming. Charming. We should all be so lucky to find ourselves in Silk country. 102 pages Ages 7-10
