The Relatives Came


The Relatives Came by Cynthia Rylant is a Caldecott Honor book that tells the story of the relatives who came from Virginia. The weeks of their visit are filled with lots of hugs, snuggled sleeps, eating good food, playing outside, and generally just being together. This warm recounting of a family visit and the lively illustrations that accompany it sweetly convey the excitement, well-being, and nostalgia that come with a visit from relatives.
