Booktalk #1

Spending time at Nanna and Poppy's house is lots of fun.  They have a very special window in the kitchen.  It's the Hello, Goodbye window.  You can see people coming to the house.  You can see people leaving the house.  There are lots of windows on Nanna and Poppy's house but there is only one special Hello, Goodbye window.

Booktalk #2

Windows sure are a lot of fun.  Looking inside lets you peek into a home or business. Looking out gives you a view of the world, large or small.  This very special welcoming window lets one lucky little girl begin her daily visits to her grandparents before going through the door.  Everyday things can be so special when you share them with people who love you.  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2007-2008)
