15 Minutes : Read It : Small Beauties

My daughter and I fell in love with this beautifully illustrated, poignant story of an Irish family who leaves their home during the potato famine. Small Beauties focuses on sharp-eyed Darcy who gathers simple memories of their home to take to America, where her sad, uprooted family craves reminders of Ireland. I dare you to read it without an Irish lilt.
