Select an option:

Let these inviting stories about relationship and tradition become a part of your family.

Born to parents of Russian, Ukranian, and Irish decent, Patricia Polacco describes her family members as marvelous storytellers. "My fondest memories are of sitting around a stove or open fire, eating apples and popping corn while listening to the old ones tell glorious stories about their homeland and the past. We are tenacious traditionalists and sentimentalists.... With each retelling our stories gain a little more Umph!"
