**Found in the 20th Century Children's Book Treasury**

I cannot believe I had never read this story before. I love it! It made me smile so big the entire time I was reading...more or less.

This is a book of poems all connected to a larger narrative. Focuses on a father’s lament of his boy being taken by the slave trade. Very emotionally mature themes with folklore woven throughout. I would use as a read aloud with 5th graders as a preface to reading a chapter book that talks directly about the slave trade. Requires teacher guidance.
