Putnam Juvenile Show Way

Soonies great-grandma was just seven years old when she was sold to a big plantation without her ma and pa, and with only some fabric and needles to call her own. She pieced together bright patches with names like North Star and Crossroads,... patches with secret meanings made into quilts called Show Ways -- maps for slaves to follow to freedom. When she grew up and had a little girl, she passed on this knowledge. And generations later, Soonie -- who was born free -- taught her own daughter how to sew beautiful quilts to be sold at market and how to read. From slavery to freedom, through segregation, freedom marches and the fight for literacy, the tradition they called Show Way has been passed down by the women in Jacqueline Woodsons family as a way to remember the past and celebrate the possibilities of the future. Beautifully rendered in Hudson Talbotts luminous art, this moving, lyrical account pays tribute to women whose strength and knowledge illuminate their daughters lives.

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes: 25th Anniversary Edition DESCRIPTION: For twenty-five years, middle-grade readers have been ...moved by this telling of Sadako Sasakis spirited battle with leukemia. She was two-years-old when the atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima at the end of World War II, and dizzy spells began when she was twelve. She faced the disease with an irrepressible spirit and focused her energy (and that of everyone who knew her) on folding 1000 paper cranes, which Japanese legend held would prompt the gods to make her well again. Eleanor Coerr crafted this story of Sadakos twelfth year after reading the book of her letters her classmates compiled after her death. This special edition contains a bio of Eleanor Coerr with details about her work on this book and instructions for folding paper cranes. An extraordinary book, one no reader will fail to find compelling and unforgettable. (Booklist, starred review) The story speaks directly to young readers of the tragedy of Sadakos death and, in its simplicity, makes a universal statement for peace in the world.
