This year’s companion book for younger readers is an award winning story of a loving African-American family, living in the town of Flint, Mich. in 1963. When the oldest son begins to get into a bit of trouble, the parents decide he should spend some time with his strict grandmother (Mrs. Watson’s mother) in Birmingham, Ala. The entire family travels there together by car, and during their visit, tragic events take place that affect them collectively.
Although the Watson family is fictitious, the story incorporates and centers around the historically factual 196316th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, a critical catalyst of the American civil rights movement.
This book has earned Curtis a Newbery Honor, the Coretta Scott King Award and the Golden Kite Award.
