Purpose: Picture Book (Wide Reading Project)

Genre: Realistic Fiction

Format: Picture Book

Grades: Primary - Intermediate

Subjects/Themes: See the bookshelves above.

Classroom Use: Great potential as a read aloud in primary class on a topic (a parent who is incarcerated) that could have great relevance to specific students in urban settings. A must in a primary classroom library.

Review: Woodson at her finest yet again. A very authentic, natural and honest portrait of a difficult situation that some African American students may be dealing with. A story that needs to be told. Ransome's illustrations take the complex feelings within the story to a whole new level while Woodson's text keeps its feel simple and tangible to students.
