I read this book out loud to a group of 2nd graders. They listened and seemed to enjoy the story. We used this story to have a conversation about the change in the main character's feelings and examining WHY the main character felt that way.

I loved the atmospheric artwork and the themes of family and tradition. It reminded me of gatherings I do with my extended family - the teasing and traditions and family dynamics.

A Great Books for Great Kids pick 2020. Alan looks forward to the annual family reunion at the farm where Daddy grew up, but everyone is supposed to pay tribute to family history and Alan doesn't know what to share. A beautiful celebration of African American history, culture and ritual. Grades 1-3.
