Eerdmans Books for Young Readers

One Big Family was written for very young readers over two decades ago, but didn't find it's way to print until this year. West Virginia poet laureate Marc Harshman's book celebrates family togetherness by describing a classic summer family reunion.

Published by Eerdmans Publishing Co., One Big Family is available in bookstores around the state.

"When the crickets sing and the end of summer is near, Grandma and Grandpa say COME."
