Finally, an early chapter book written for kids in the middle grades of elementary school that is artistic, thoughtful, unique, and beautifully written. Often books at this level are so poorly written it's painful to get through them. This one, though, is written so well it surprised me. The prose are tight, beautifully rendered, and correctly done - no amateur writing errors or faux pas. Glenda Millard pulled this off, in a difficult genre/category, even while including creative, emotional, and unique scenes and characters. A wonderful little story, written by an apparent pro. I bought it for Patrice Barton's illustrations- never expected to love the story, too. But I did! A fantastic little gem!

The Naming of Tishkin Silk is a gentle tale to take your breathe away.
It is one of the few books my ten year old child would persist with, reading by torch after bedtime, because she was captivated by the lives of the Silks.
The central characters Griffin Silk and his best friend are extraordinarily warm, thoughtful young people, doing their own thing in the primary school ground and sorting through a deep family sadness the rest of the time.
Lots of grownups (would) have trouble seeing & understanding the things Griffin can see and coming to decisions about how to help.
There is a rare an memorable quality to this picture of a family's life on the outskirts of a country town.

What a beautiful story. Dealing with some hard subject matter on a child's level, but not sugar coating any of it. Loved this book and all of the characters in it!

Beautiful story.

I bought this book on the recommendation of my niece. She had been reading it with her son and she thought I would like it. Even though I am over 40, I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Very sweet and well written.

This middle-to-upper elementary book deals magically with the themes of family love, peer pressure, bullying, being new and afraid, separation, death in the family... the list goes on, and is incredibly long, for such a little book! A standout theme, from among this list of important ones, is the idea that a child often blames himself for trouble of any sort in a family. This story handles that magnificently, and spotlights the necessity for abiding love in a child's life--and one very good friend!

I don't want to give away the plot, so I'll just tell you that Griffin's mother and baby sister are gone and he is sad. Griffin has to start school for the first time after being homeschooled, and it is quite an adjustment for Griffin. Luckily, Griffin meets Layla and they become fast friends.

A lovely little story.
