I liked this book for three reasons. First, Angela Johnson's style of writing is unique to anything that I've seen in a children's picture book. Her style of writing mimics poetry, which makes sense since she is most known for being a poet. As I was reading "The Aunt in Our House", I could see how this text could easily be put into stanzas. The flow of the book was nice and organized. It was also rhythmic in a poetry way. Second, this book left you with questions. It really forces the reader to piece together the text and make their own inferences of the story. "The Aunt" is said to have arrived at the house, but the main character, who is also unnamed, never shares why her aunt has come to stay with them. "The Aunt" engages in a lot of activities with the little girl and her sister. The main character talks about the many things they do together, such as playing the trumpet and playing with yarn. One of my favorite parts is, "On rainy days she helps us find the biggest puddles... and says shoes aren't important." Lastly, the family dynamic is not the "typical" you often see in stories. Johnson creates a diverse family dynamic for this book; proving all families are different. The two girls live with their African American mother and white father. The fathers sister, "The Aunt", comes to visit. Using context, the reader infers that "The Aunt" may be experiencing some difficulties in her life, but they are never brought up. Johnson includes, "But sometimes The Aunt in our house is quiet and looks out the window all day. Mama says she misses her home, even with the picture painting and the days that shoes aren't important." The reader is left wondering, "Where did The Aunt live?", "How long is she staying?", "What saddens The Aunt?" I love this because it allows the reader to come up with their own ideas. This encourages deeper thinking. Overall this book was by far different from the other books that I have reviewed; but different in a good way.

I loved this story. It was a very sweet story, and had beautiful pictures. It shows that every family is different, and set up different kind of ways, and also touches on when people lose their homes. It is a sweet story about family, and the love they have for each other. I would share this book with Kindergaten and up. ( )
