    A True Delight!

    ¿This book revisits the relationship that children have with their beloved grandmothers. It is a story that speaks to the innocence of children. It also reminds us of the insignificance that children put on things material when nurtured in an environment of love. Additionally, the faceless depiction of the characters allows the readers to envision themselves as the characters. Sweet Honey in the Rock adds melodious harmonies that elicit one's own childish enthusiasm for sing-alongs. It was a favorite of mine to share in the classroom and remains a personal keepsake.¿
