About the books: ONE DAY AND ONE AMAZING MORNING ON ORANGE STREET and DEAR BABY are two of the authors' favorites because of the joy they brought her while writing them.

ONE DAY AND ONE AMAZING MORNING ON ORANGE STREET: When a mysterious man arrives one day on Orange Street in Los Angeles, the children who live on the block try to find out who he is and why he's there. Little do they know that his story - and the story of a very old orange tree - connects to each of their personal worries in ways they never could have imagined. From impressing friends to dealing with an expanding family to understanding a younger sibling's illness, the characters' storylines come together around that orange tree.

Taking place over the course of a day and a half, Joanne Rocklin's middle grade novel builds a story about family, childhood anxieties, and the importance of connection. In the end the fate of the tree (and the kids who care for it) reminds us of the magic of the everyday and of the rich history all around us.

SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL says it's " Fascinating and thought-provoking, the writing has a gentle cadence, richness in detail, and is charged with emotion. The book, like the oranges on the Orange Street tree, presents segments of life that are both sweet and tart and sure to satisfy."
