This children’s picture book uses short prose-poems and full-color oil-on-linen illustrations to tell the story of an African-American family reunion in the Midwest -- the social activities that you can see, and the underlying love … that, it turns out, you can actually see, too. It’s narrated in the perspective of a 10(ish)-year-old boy, though the voice and the details call a girl/an adult much more to mind -- which is fine, because that may be you, reading this book to a child. More than a book about how fun a reunion is, this is about how important family is.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761455590, School & Library Binding)

Every summer, relatives (old and young, big and small) come together from all over the country for a reunion. All have one thing in common: their love for each other. They sleep wherever there is room. They eat and laugh and tell stories and remember. And a nine-year old boy captures it all in his words. This beautiful, inspirational collection of poems by newcomer Traci Dant is matched with the extraordinary paintings of acclaimed illustrator Eric Velasquez. Some Kind of Love is a book for every family to treasure.
