Cinnamon, Mint, & Mothballs: A Visit to Grandmother's House

Author: Ruth Tiller

First line: Last fall, just as leaves traded green for gold, we went to Grandmother's house.

Why you should read this book: Accompanied by bold cut-paper illustrations resembling stained-glass, this book uses a poetic voice to describe a young girl's perception of a day and night at her grandmother's cozy farmhouse. A perfect bedtime book.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You are trying to stay awake.
