Author Eve Bunting (Smoky Night) and illustrator Lauren Castillo (Nana in the City) have teamed up on this poignant book about family changes. Callie experiences a range of emotions as she watches her parents sell off most of their belongings (hers, too!) and downsize from a house with a yard to a small apartment. Callie doesn't fully understand why her family has to move; she tells her best friend that "It's something to do with money." The resolution is bittersweet. Callie understands that all the things the family sold wouldn't fit into the new apartment anyway; "But we will fit into our new place. And we are taking us." A gentle introduction to financial pressures, Yard Sale is a heartbreaking reminder that families weather storms with love.
