Summary
A Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year!

A multicultural family story that celebrates kindness and differences

Lila is excited for her cousins Takeo and Rosie to visit. They're going to ride bikes, paint, and camp together! But when the cousins arrive, everything's wrong: Rosie and Takeo are better painters than Lila, have skateboards instead of bikes, and don't want to camp outside.

Lila is terribly disappointed until the cousins make her a surprise: a big banner for their "best cousin" Lila!

Inspired by the author's own large, diverse family, When the Cousins Came is a sensitive story about insecurity, hosting, and friendship. Katie Yamasaki's tale, paired with bright mixed-media art, reminds children that negative thoughts and anxiety over exclusion don't always translate to reality, and that even when plans go wrong you can still have a good time together.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Lila is thrilled when her cousins Rosie and Takeo come to visit. Lila has a baby brother, but he is too young to be much fun. She cannot wait to have company closer to her own age. The cousins, however, are not exactly what Lila expects. Being from the city, they do things a little differently. Lila has a bicycle; they have skateboards. Lila paints a picture; they paint a mural on a fence. They know how to use chopsticks to eat their noodles. Even their hairstyles seem sophisticated. Lila thinks, Everything the cousins did was a little bit extra special. Rosie and Takeo learn that the country has its own appeal when they nervously agree to a night walk and discover the magic of fireflies. A planned campout is canceled due to rain, but the children make an elaborate indoor tent, one big enough for all three of them to share. Mixed-media collage illustrations, incorporating acrylic, gouache, pastels, colored pencil, and hand-painted cut paper, beautifully present the multiethnic family.--Whitehurst, Lucinda Copyright 2018 Booklist"
