Description

Mildred D. Taylor's Newbery Award-winning masterpiece with an introduction written and read by Jacqueline Woodson, just in time for its 40th anniversary!

Set in Mississippi at the height of the Depression, this is the story of one family's struggle to maintain their integrity, pride, and independence in the face of racism and social injustice. And it is also Cassie's story - Cassie Logan, an independent girl who discovers over the course of an important year why having land of their own is so crucial to the Logan family, even as she learns to draw strength from her own sense of dignity and self-respect.

Critiques

"Vivid - complex - powerful - convincing - The novel shows the rich inner rewards of black pride, love, and independence." (Booklist)

"Recorded Books' commitment to producing outstanding classics for young people has never been more obvious than in this recording of one of the best books ever to win the Newbery Award.... Lynne Thigpen, one of the welcome new African-American narrators, is so convincing that it could be Cassie herself telling what happened." ( AudioFile)

Good story

This is a great story about a black family's struggle in the 1930's in the Southern USA. I used the narrative (with the paperback books) in my middle school class (for 2 years now) and the students love it. Most of them have very limited knowledge of the Civil Rights struggle in America. We used the book along with speeches by JFK and ML King, Jr and segments of the Harriett Tubman story to survey slavery and civil rights in the United States. The narrarator does an excellent job telling this story. My students couldn't wait to get to the end, and then they wanted to read the next book in the Mildred Taylor collection!

A story too valuable not too be told ...

My 11-year old son recommended I read this book, which he chose to read in a Battle of the Books competition in his middle school. We encourage his exploration through reading and the conversations that ensued from this were priceless as a family.

There is an absolute ugliness in racism, but when children learn about it in school it is an abstract idea, but a story like this one unravels the emotions, the human cost, and, perhaps most importantly, the sacrifices (big and small) that went into creating real change.

I recommend this book to families willing to talk about it afterward.

Amazing!!!

I’m in 6th grade and we’re reading this book now and people laugh at this book but I take it serious because it shows how people in the past suffered. The reason why people laugh at this is because it says “nigger” “nigga” and etc. but again I take it very serious so I don’t care what people think how it’s stupid this book is about history!

Recapturing after 25 years

As a homeschool mom, this audio book has helped me to recapture the telling truth of Blacks in America before rereading, this time with my own child. The narrators spoke with proper emphasis and diction, taking nothing from Ms. Taylor's writing, making me crave more of the story. This has been a superb experience that I'm sad has ended.

Well Read

A good companion to the novel. I use this to supplement read aloud in my classroom. It definitely helps with the dialect and language which truly adds to the tone and mood of the story.
