This beautiful book became the favorite 'Read Aloud' in my sixth grade classroom. In many inner city classrooms teachers are urged to find a book that the students are able to read. Even my non-readers loved this book because they could pick up on the rhythm of the poetry and memorize it easily. Every day a different student wanted his or her turn to read the book. Thank you for this gift of poetry and pictures that bonded a white teacher to her African American students.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

i rate it '5'.....
a short concise look into the african-american child circa 1800's to early 1900's. Pictures of your grandparents that you never had, but wished to own, along with charming verse. My grand daughter and I read it together!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
