(4 1/2) Although the setting of this book (living in a trailer and attending a one room-trailer school in Rural Saskatchewan) will be unfamiliar to most young readers the feelings the narrator faces when she finds out she will be moving to somewhere far away (Toronto) are familiar. The narrator doesn't know Toronto--she's afraid the kids there won't know the things she knows. She decides to try to draw everything she knows and will miss about "here" and I particularly loved the image of her folding the sights and sounds and feelings up into a giant piece of paper she can take with her when she moves. The illustrations are a bit rustic and child-like, and capture the mood and feeling of the book well. ~s
