Pictures of Hollis Wood
PICTURES OF HOLLIS WOOD
Ages 10-14

Author:Patricia Reilly Giff, Wendy Lamb

Hollis Woods has been in so many foster homes she can hardly remember them all. She even runs away from the Regans, the one family who offers her a home. When Hollis is sent to Josie, an elderly artist who is quirky and affectionate, she wants to stay. But Josie is growing more forgetful every day. If Social Services finds out, they’ll take Hollis away and move Josie into a home. Well, Hollis Woods won’t let anyone separate them. She’s escaped the system before; this time, she plans to take Josie with her. Yet behind all her plans, Hollis longs for her life with the Regans, fixing each moment of her time with them in pictures she’ll never forget.
When she was six, Hollis Woods' teacher asked her class to draw a picture of something that began with the letter "W." Orphaned Hollis drew her ideal family: a mother, a father, and two children. "I don't see one 'W' word here," said her teacher. But Hollis had been thinking of "wish," and "want" and "Wouldn't it be lovely." Now a teenager, Hollis has become an expert at running away from foster homes. Her latest placement is with Josie, a retired art teacher, and Hollis, an artist herself, senses kinship with this distinctive woman.

MORE, MORE, MORE, SAID THE BABY

Author:Vera B. Williams

The author uses vibrant colors and hand-painted rainbow letters to tell story-poems about three children: Little Guy, Little Pumpkin, and Little Bird. In each story, the child is chased and caught by a loving parent or grandparent, and readers can practically hear the squeals of delight as the children clamor for "more, more, more!" Many grownups have played similar games of love with their children, and the whole book feels like one giant hug.
