Pecan Pie Baby

Pecan Pie Baby - Jacqueline Woodson, Sophie Blackall Gia is sick of hearing about the baby that is coming. She hates it that the baby is coming. She is afraid everything will change. Beautiful truthful text that you don’t often find in a children’s book, that sounds like talk real people talk and with actions that seem like actions real people take. Comforting, too.“Just as summer started leaving us and the leaving brought all those colors to the trees, Mama pulled out my winter clothes.‘Time to give away the stuff that’s too small,’ I said. ‘This didn’t used to be a mini-dress.’Mama smiled. ‘Let’s keep it, Gia.’And I knew what was coming next---more talk about the ding-dang baby.”
