    This historical fiction book is highly recommended. The "Green Book" was true to life book that was written to help guide African-Americans travelers safely in areas (down South) that were segregated in the USA. The text is written at an easy-level (k-2nd grade, but the concepts are higher- segregation, Jim Crow Laws, discrimination, and comparing/ contrasting plot/ theme/ mood/ change of character/ perspective of a child telling the story are at above level) that supports the pictures (or vice versa) in depicting the story of a young girl and her family that travel from Chicago to Alabama. This story helps build background information for students who need help connecting with what life was really like in the year 1952 for African-Americans. My students will be discussing this book and preparing literary essays based on the thesis that this book demonstrates how African-Americans supported each other in a time when traveling South was dangerous. The book could be read for any age but may be best suited for elementary. Teachers of older student can use this book to open discussion or prior to reading a book such as the Watson's Go To Birmingham- a 6th grade novel.
