Aunt Louise Comes to Visit by Katie Brewster
Katie Spivey Brewster’s whimsical poetry and Mary Barrow’s endearing illustrations tell the story of the regular visits of Katie’s great aunt while Katie was a child in Wilmington, NC.
Aunt Louise visits twice a year, always dressed,
in shoes, bag, and hat to match.
And every time she visits, she brings the girls,
a very special snack.
But this time she has forgotten it, or to the girls,
it so seems.
They wonder if they’ll miss the pleasure, of eating the treats,
of which they’ve dreamed.
“What a delightful read and sweet reminder of when my own aunties used to visit. Family is a treasure and Mrs. Brewster captures it so well in this dear book."

“Let the gift of family flood back to you as you read this treasure and soak in its precious illustrations. It is a book to keep for generations, that inspires us to focus on the legacy that pouring into our family leaves for generations to come. Thank you for this book and for your sweet spirit, Mrs. Brewster!
