Sofia paints the Brooklyn landscape through her Sunday dialogues with her Italian nana, her Uncle Frankie, and local merchants. As Sofia-+s cousins listen to Uncle Frankie recount the events at Ebbets Field from the exhibition game on April 11, 1947, Sofia-+s nana sends her on errands down 18th Street to buy cheese, bread, and cannoli for their Sunday dinner.This multicultural story focuses on the intergenerational relationships in an Italian-American family in Brooklyn during the 1960-+s. Uncle Frankie-+s keepsake from that historic day in baseball history makes this story a treasure for Sofia and all who read it.
