Sunday Shopping

By The Horn Book Guide

Every Sunday night, young African American narrator Evie goes “Sunday shopping with Grandma. They browse advertisements, pretending to visit stores and discussing everything they’re “buying.” Bright mixed media illustrations blend realistic portraiture with their flights of fancy. Sharper emotions—worry for Evie’s mother in the armed forces; awareness of constrained finances—underlie this cozy story, but Evie and Grandma’s joy in each other is reassuring.
