The Relatives Came illustration will appear here.

Do you like your relatives? The family in the story does. The relatives came from Virginia to spend a few days. They talked and had a big dinner. They had lots of fun and then it was time for them to leave.

I liked the book because it is about family having fun. This book reminds me of myself when I stay over my aunts house and my cousins and the rest of my family eat a big dinner and all play games. The drawings were nice and very colorful.

I recommend this book to anyone that loves their family very much. Also someone who wants to learn all the great things you can do with your family when they visit.
