The crabby neighbors of El Camino can’t bear all the music, fun and laughter at the house of the new family on the block as aunts, uncles, cousins and grannies arrive for a big noisy reunion. Too Many Visitors for One Little House is a joyful story about the importance of being included..

My Review:
I adored this book.
The story reminded me so much of my home when all my kids were young.
We always had too many people in our little house (we have 10 children),
and that was even when we didn’t have visitors!
And boy did we ever have some grouchy neighbors…
just like the ones on El Camino Street.
I laughed out loud while reading about all the crazy members
who gather together for a family reunion. One after another,
a baby, toddlers, teenagers, and older folks…they all show up
and the fun begins.  Merriment and mirth fill the house….
but the neighbors aren’t happy and they plan to do something about it!
