About this title


While opening her family's generations-old vacation cabin, a little girl delights in her favorite sights and smells.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-A young girl visiting her family's cabin in winter describes events from her mother and grandparents' times there as she shares in the chores of getting ready for the night. The many children who have not experienced the pleasures of cabin-camping without electricity, indoor plumbing, or running water will come to understand them better through Gloria Rand's warm text and Ted Rand's realistic acrylic illustrations. The double-page paintings frame the narrative and give off the gentle light of lantern-lit spaces. His pictures of wildlife and of the rustic interiors are particularly charming. Readers who have treasured the first-person narration, family story, and illuminated dark paintings of Jane Yolen and John Schoenherr's Owl Moon (Philomel, 1987) will see clear connections here. With its themes of stability and security, as well as details about life in earlier generations, The Cabin Key will find a place in social-studies units. It might also promote discussions about camping experiences, school science camp trips, or other times spent in the woods.

Store Description

This business has been set up to sell my personsl library, since I have retired from a store-front bookstore. I am not open to the public but would consider a provate viewing on occasion. While I have books from many categories the greater percentage is fairy tales, fantasy and related art; a selection of signed editions and some military. In addition to this I will periodically list selections of Vintage Pagerbacks and related Pulp Culture items. My interests have always been varied and so is the collection.
