This energetic, poetic book reminds Americans, particularly Black Americans, to take pride in the United States' newest national holiday. Juneteenth shows how a common history can bring strangers together from across the nation, all experiencing the same feelings of happiness and pride. The illustrations are lively, bright, and emotional. And the author's use of lyrics from a song that's rich with history adds a sense of familiarity to the story. Readers will be excited to commemorate history on Juneteenth with this great book.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
