The Best Tailor in Pinbauê by Eymard Toledo

He loves to help his Uncle sew.  He can cut pieces, tack them, and do all kinds of odds and ends.  His Uncle tells him stories while he does it.  And they make such colorful clothes.  Everybody loves his work!  Then the factory comes to town...

Triangle Square and Edelweiss allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published September 26th.

Once the factory has arrived, all his Uncle's business is from the factory.  He makes grey uniforms for them.  It's not much fun but it is a source of income.  Then the factory buys the uniforms from another company far away and gets them cheaper.  What are they to do?

The nephew comes up with an idea on how to improve sales and it works.  This is a sweet family story about a Brazilian family and how they adjusted to change.  The illustrations use paper to make almost 3-D graphics.  They even use some of the pretty material for the graphics.  The story is simple and the book is special.

Story House by Kristen Balouch

I would have loved having this book as a child.  It's a board book of six pages and has over a hundred reusable decals. You can make you...
