Ch1 My 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. This is a great story about a black family's struggle in the '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. 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!
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. This was masterfully done and was a joy to listen. Greatly appreciated this 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.
Thank you I read and enjoyed this book so much. I actually went back in time and. Felt every feeling and emotion. Started out a bit slow for me but soon became a hunger I could not control. I liked how the book is so descriptive and very realistic. Also the audiobook creates a great atmosphere and makes you more tense, happy, sad and scared of events in the book. I would recommend this to 12 year old readers who are good at underetanding complex meanings and storylines.
Even though the n word is used, kt has to be, because thats what people were called in those days. The story was brilliant and the narration helped the story along the journey.
Would listen to it again! A wonderful story which was read brilliantly. I felt Luke I knew the characters and felt their pain. A story full of everything. Seen through the eyes of a child. The best way to view such stories. I first read this book at school around 15 years ago, as brilliant, thought provoking and important as I remember. A brilliant story on many levels and a true coming of age story.
A must read for children and adults. Your audiobook is waiting….

Mama convinces Papa it's too dangerous for them to make the trip at night after what happened last time. Papa agrees to go in the morning. After Papa and Mr.
Morrison return from Strawberry, the news is even worse. They have to borrow money from Uncle Hammer to help pay off the mortgage, and their credit is no longer good in Strawberry. At the end of August, the annual revival arrives in town.
It's a weeklong event that brings the black community together. Uncle Hammer shows up at the first night of the revival—without his car. It turns out he had to sell it to help pay for the mortgage on the land. Man, that is some brotherly love.
On the last night of the revival, a big storm blows in. He's wearing fancy clothes and makes a big show of introducing R. That's weird. His new friends and flashy new clothes aren't making a difference in how the Logans and others view him. They still think he's a shady character.
