Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Wow am I glad I read this today! This memoir of Jacqueline Woodson's youngest years is one of the most beautiful books I have ever read. I learned a bit about what it was like t be a small black girl in both the North and the South during the 60s. She writes about the relationships with her family members, how her family choices impacted her, and most wonderfully how she knew she wanted to be a writer when she was a little girl even though reading/writing was hard for her. I can't wait to share this books with staff and students as a great read aloud to highlight hopes and dreams!
