This short, fully illustrated narrative takes us into the eternal present of one absorbing series of moments in a child’s life. Expect to smile as young Pamela prepares and carries out an activity she has carefully thought through. A book to read aloud, it is written by Christine Marlin with the same attentive understanding of children as the illustrator, who happens to be her own grandmother–Hilda van Stockum. (GoodReads)
