Patricia has written many heart-warming books.

Most of Patricia’s storybooks are connected to her life. They are sometimes autobiographical, and sometimes they are multicultural and filled with a special depth that is rare.


Patricia’s books work great for everyone, and even more so when they are in the hands of school teachers who have a group of children sat in front of them. These books are superb tools for reading to school children ages 6+. There is so much depth and warmth in these very special stories. For sure they also work wonders in the hands of individual children who are at home and able to read by themselves. Children that love a good book will get themselves beautifully lost in the deep pages of all Patricia Polacco stories, right up until the last page. If you know children that want to form a book club, then these are also the stories that can be highly recommended to them!
