The Watsons Go to Birmingham—1963

This is an award-winning and exciting account of a family from the North traveling to Alabama during the early days of the civil rights movement. Ages I'm so glad I didn't give up, though. This is a really good book that deserves our full attention, even though it's difficult sometimes. Excellent story, humorous and interesting. Incorporates the family going to Alabama to visit Grandma and being there during the bombings of churches. This is not a sad story but cute and funny yet with the seriousness of the racial tension.
