A Visit to Amy-Claire

by Claudia Mills
Illustrated by Sheila Hamanaka

Published by Macmillan, 1992
32 pages
ISBN: 0-02-766991-2

Ages 4 - 7

Five-year-old Rachel can't wait to get to her seven-year-old cousin's house. She is anxious to repeat all the fun she remembers having with her the previous summer -- taking bubble baths, swinging on a tire swing and playing school. But once she and her family get to Amy-Claire's house, Rachel is in for a major disappointment because all Amy-Claire wants to do is play with Rachel's two-year-old sister, Jessie. Hamanaka's bold, sun-dappled oil paintings depict Amy-Claire as Asian-American while her cousins are biracial (Asian/white) in a realistic story about imaginary play and shifting family relationships. CCBC categories: Picture Books. 1992, Macmillan, 32 pages, $14.95. Ages 4-7.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
