My Aunt Came Back

by Pat Cummings

Published by HarperCollins, 1998
12 pages
ISBN: 0-694-01059-6

Ages 2-4

My aunt came back from Timbuktu. She brought me back a wooden shoe. / My aunt came back from Bucharest. She brought me back a quilted vest." Each double-age spread introduces another faraway place and a gift a young girl's aunt brought from it. While the board-book set is not likely to know the pattern familiar to their older siblings, young children will nevertheless enjoy the lilting rhythms and exuberant illustrations that depict a warm relationship in an African American family.
