No Mush Today

By Write for a Reader

Children will relate to this story. I like the fact that the story is about an African American family. We need to expose children to all cultures and books are one way to do that. Children also need to see other children like them in books, and LEE & LOW does this so well with the titles they choose to publish. I love how the illustrator uses facial expressions to show Nonie’s feelings. As you read, you notice these even though the author doesn’t tell you how Nonie feels. This adds so much to the story. Young children will love this story for its illustrations, and its message.
