This is a large (8 1/4" x 10 3/4") paperback book, beautifully illustrated in watercolor on Arches paper. It is wartime, and "colored women" are being hired in Chicago to fill in for the men who are off fighting. Ada Ruth is left with her grandmother while her mother takes a job washing trains. Ada Ruth watches for the postman and adopts a stray cat to fill the endless days until her mother finally writes that she will be "coming on home soon." It's a gently, almost poetically told story, and the watercolor illustrations are captivating...every time you look at one of them you see something more. I'd give this book a 10 on a scale from 1 to 10 for elementary age students, but it speaks to us older readers as well.

You can never go wrong with a Jacqueline Woodson book. My 5th graders love to hear and discuss her books. Her stories are rich and have many themes for lively classroom discussions. I have all her picture books (and other novels) and absolutley love them. I had the privledge to meet Ms. Woodson in 2009 at a book conference at San Houston State University along with Christoper Paul Curtis. Both...amazing speakers and writers. Don't hesitate buying this book for your library.

super beautiful illustrations but the story line is quite depressing and bleak with no drama. Beautiful art though. It's great that it shed light on this historical issue though but I feel it is more of an art book than a good and interesting story for a child.

I purchased it used, so it was not in the best condition but I was ok that I didnt have to pay full price at this time. I purchased it for the theme and quality of writing, so I got what I needed.
