What a beautiful tribute to Harlem. The nuance and liveliness. The heartbreak and joy. It is a mix of emotions, but it manages to show the character and depth of this place in such a way that I've never read. While this is a book for young children, I still would be proud to have it in my 6th grade classroom as well. In fact, I think that older children and teenagers might be able to appreciate the nuance and allusions much better than young children.
