Excellent Read

I just read Show Way as multicultural children's book and was very pleased. I enjoyed the wonderful illustrations that brought each text to life on every page. I especially enjoyed the fact that it allowed for long conversation about brave women who never stopped believing in one day living a free life.

Newbery Honor Book

Did you know African America slaves in America used quilts to depict the path of the underground railroad? This inspirational book by Jacqueline Woodson captures this story through the eyes of a little African American girl looking into her family history. The text is in a unique half-rhyme verse and pictures look like quilted pieces on each and every page. Following Soonie's great-grandma's historic enslavement, to years later when Soonie is born, this story brings to light the colors, structure, historic "jumping of the broom" and other African American slave traditions. A superb read for young readers, and something older readers will embrace with understanding, this Newbery Honor Book is Highly Recommended for Grades 3-5.
