Praise for An Orange for Frankie
“Autobiography melds with history in this poignant tale of a family tradition, set around Christmastime during the Great Depression.”–Booklist

“Polacco’s watercolor-and-pencil illustrations are well rendered as always and appropriate for this slight but wordy, nostalgic tale.”–School Library Journal

“Holiday treats abound in a colorful and touching story of generosity and the ties that bind, based on a story of the author’s great-uncle. “–Publishers Weekly

“If you are a Polacco fan then you know that her books reflect a family experience, and that she has a way of tugging at the hearts of her readers. This offering is no different . . . Polacco’s loose watercolor and pencil drawings show a familiar cast of characters and readers will feel like they have once again stepping into the lives of this fascinating family of Polacco’s.”–Children’s Literature

“Polacco’s illustrations . . . are timeless in their portrayal of a happy family enjoying life together.”–Kirkus Reviews
