In this children's book, author Jacqueline Woodson has written a delicate, touching autobiographical collection of poetry. Though they together document her childhood years as an African American child living both in South Carolina with her grandparents and in New York with her mother, each short poem also stands comfortably alone.

This was my first work by Woodson, and though I'm generally a hard sell for poetry, this was excellent and has piqued my interest in sampling more of her writing.
