Inspired by my mother, Alberta, and her special friend, Omadeen, this children’s picture book will appeal to 3 to 8-year-olds as a read-aloud. Talitha is a little plaid skirt who holds an important tradition together by traveling with each girl in the family to her two-year-old photo shoot, beginning in 1946. Talitha’s name means “little girl” from Mark, chapter four, in the new testament. Early learning, family life, and imagination are key concepts in this heartwarming story.
