The Matchbox Diary by Paul Fleischman, illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline.

When a little girl visits her great-grandfather, she asks about the collection of matchboxes harboring objects she can hold in her hand, each one evoking a memory. Together they tell of his journey from Italy to a new country, before he could read and write: the olive pit his mother gave him to suck on when there wasn't enough food; a bottle cap he saw on his way to the boat; a ticket still retaining the thrill of his first baseball game. Newbery Medalist Paul Fleischman and acclaimed illustrator Bagram Ibatoulline tell a breathtaking immigration tale with appeal across generations.

Hardcover, 40 pages. Recommended ages 6 - 9, Grades 1 - 4.

From the exhibition Finding Home: Four Artists' Journeys on view November 9, 2019 through May 25, 2020 at Norman Rockwell Museum.
