9780061259210: The Great Migration: Journey to the North

We were one family among the many thousands. Mama and Daddy leaving home, coming to the city, with their hopes and their courage, their dreams and their children, to make a better life.

When Eloise Greenfield was four months old, her family moved from their home in Parmele, North Carolina, to Washington, D.C. Before Jan Spivey Gilchrist was born, her mother moved from Arkansas and her father moved from Mississippi. Both settled in Chicago, Illinois. Though none of them knew it at the time, they had all become part of the Great Migration.

In this collection of poems and collage artwork, award winners Eloise Greenfield and Jan Spivey Gilchrist gracefully depict the experiences of families like their own, who found the courage to leave their homes behind during The Great Migration and make new lives for themselves elsewhere. The Great Migration concludes with a bibliography.

Review:

Praise for Brothers & Sisters: “Timeless...clear and universal. Everyone can relate to the poems’ affection, frustration, laughter, jealousy, and family pride, as well as the love that always shines through.” (ALA Booklist)

Praise for Brothers & Sisters: “These are the sweetest poems for kids and families of all kinds.” (Charlotte Observer)

Praise for Brothers & Sisters: “Together their picture book celebrates how brothers get along with brothers, sisters with sisters, and various other combinations.” (Horn Book Magazine)

Praise for Brothers & Sisters: “A feel-good collection, equally suited to reading alone or aloud.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for Brothers & Sisters: “Greenfield’s poetic observations and commentaries succinctly capture siblings at various ages and stages. The illustrator is equally as skillful. This book needs to be shared in classrooms, in storytimes, and especially within families.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for The Friendly Four: “Fun for reading aloud.” (ALA Booklist)

Praise for The Friendly Four: “Idealistic and nostalgic...perfect for classroom readers’ theater or as a way for a young child to share reading with an older sibling or parent.” (The Horn Book)

Praise for The Friendly Four: “A lively tribute to children’s imagination as well as an inviting introduction to free verse.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for The Friendly Four: “Has an open accessibility, with its big print and visually inviting pages, and an upbeat warmth.” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)

Praise for In the Land of Words: “[a] joy-filled, right-on tribute to wordsmithing in all its forms.” (Kirkus Reviews)

Praise for For the Love of the Game: “This book will set children soaring.” (ALA Booklist)

Praise for For the Love of the Game: “A powerful blending of words and pictures that delivers a message that needs to be heard by children.” (School Library Journal)

Praise for Honey, I Love and Other Love Poems: “Abounds with that special tenderness surrounding the everyday experiences in a child’s life. These poems beg to be read aloud.” (Boston Globe)
