Overview

Donald Crews, the Caldecott Honor artist and award-winning creator of Freight Train, Truck, and many other classic picture books for young children, writes of his own childhood experiences visiting his grandparents in Florida.

Four African American children travel with their mother, and when the train arrives in Cottondale, Florida, the summer at Bigmama's house begins! Donald Crews brilliantly evokes the sights, sounds, and emotions of a memorable childhood experience. Beautifully and richly illustrated, this is a wonderful choice for family reading and classroom sharing. "A very special book by a superb artist and storyteller."—The Horn Book

This just goes over "what we do when we first get to our grandmother's for summer vacation", reviewing it as a child would - first we hear the bad joke, then we go in the car, then we make sure everything's the same..."Warm and loving, but not much story to it. If you want more story, get the companion book, "Shortcut".

The story of Donald Crews's summers at his grandmother's house with all of his siblings. Awesome pictures detail his summer and the activities he participated in.

A nice story about a man recalling memories of his family trip to his grandparent's house every summer. THis would be a great story to have students reflect on and write about their own memories of family and past family trips.
