For years she has travelled all around the US and the world and on every trip she sends Steven at least one postcard. He’s always wanted to go with her and he’s always loved hearing her stories.The day of the big block party is going to be more special because Aunt Carolyn is coming home for a short visit. Steven decides he wants to give Aunt Car [...]


    2. This is a fictional story. In this book, Steven has an aunt who travels all the time and has been sending him postcards since he was 3years old. This year, his aunt Carolyn is coming to the family’s annual block party. James wants to get his aunt a special gift but has a hard time finding one because he does not have enough money. By the end of the story, James finds the perfect gift and gets an even better surprise in return. I really like the artwork in this book. I think it would be a nice [...]

    9. This book is about Steven, a young boy who loves hearing about the travels of his Aunt Carolyn. Aunt Carolyn always sends Steven postcards from all the places she travels to. Aunt Carolyn is coming home for the family's annual block party. Steven is on the hunt to find her the perfect present to welcome her back home. I like the illustrations in this book a lot. The pictures are scrapbook-like and there are pictures of the postcards from Aunt Carolyn in the background which I think adds to the d [...]
