My little boy first found this book at the library. He used checked it out everytime it was on the shelf, until I bought a copy for him. I love everything about this book--the illustrations, the text, the style of storytelling, the poignant glimpse of the contrast of past and present, and most of all the fact that my little boy loves it so much. He is African-American, adopted by our family who are Caucasian. I'm always looking for great children's literature with African American boys in them and this is among the best I've come across.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Educational to the Reader and Listener
I read this book to my children when they were very young, but I think I learned more than they did. It was some very interesting reading. I lost this book in the move but could not remember the 'exact' title. I found it on the net and now I'm glad that I can repurchase it and share it again with my childrenWas this review helpful?
