The Matchbox Diary
( by Paul Fleischman/ illus. Bagram Ibatoulline, Candlewick $16.99 Score: )

As a boy, great-grandfather could not write, but he kept a diary of small items that fit in little matchboxes. Each contained a reminder of a story that he now tells to his little great grandchild. This immigrant book gives young listeners a glimpse into the world that so many Italians and others ethnic groups went through. 7 & up.
