KIRKUS REVIEW

 Echoing Rylant's When I Was Young in the Mountains (Caldecott Honor, 1983), a new author celebrates Nantucket, beginning each experience--playing on the beach, a game of flashlight tag, observing woodland creatures, exploring an old cemetery--with the same words: ``When I was a child on the island.'' Haeffele's attractive realistic oil paintings depict two sisters and their friends in the well-varied scenes. A pleasant visit that nicely evokes the sights and sensations of happy times. (Picture book. 4-8)
