11 Ways to Ruin a Photograph by Darcy Pattison is the winner of “The Help” children’s Story Contest. The book will be a winner to you too. The book begins with her mommy is pregnant with her. As the girl grows up, the girl is sad that her dad has gone soldiering. Each month, photographs are taken and she seems to be blotted out, blurred, and deliberately hidden through each month of the year. Each photograph is full of humor. Finally he comes home, mommy has another baby. This time, the little girl becomes the photographer. What a great book for anyone explaining deployment to a child, student, or class. This isn’t Darcy Pattison’s first book and it won’t be her last. Coming in February 2012, Wisdom, the Midway Albatross.
