This book is about John Henry, his mom Annie Mae, and his best friend. He loves to play with John Henry. They have to do things the both can do because of his skin. They love to swim but can't go to the pool together and have to go to the lake. The boy goes to get ice pops but John Henry can't go in. One day the pool opens up for everyone and the boys are so excited. But they filled it with tar and they never got to swim together. It made the boys very upset. John Henry wants to do everything his best friend gets to do. He goes and gets an ice pop for the first time and they walked in the front door together.

I think this is a good book for students because it shows students how hard it was for kids of color in these time. These are all things everyone can do now, but that was not always the case. It sheds light on situations children just like them were put into.

The illustrations are painted very beautifully. You can really see all the brush strokes and colors the artist used to create the pictures. ( )

Freedom Summer shows the challenges and adversity of two young boys that are best friends despite societal expectations. The story is uncomfortable yet comforting, as you follow Young Joe, a privileged white boy, and John Henry, the son of the cook in Young Joe's home. Deborah Wiles takes you on Joe's journey of understanding his privilege and creating hope for John Henry through friendship, encouragement, and humility. I think this is a text that could easily be incorporated in a classroom, especially with our current social climate. The story teaches acceptance and emphasizes the innocence of a child while introducing sensitive subjects in an appropriate manner for young readers. ( )

Freedom Summer tells the story of Joe, a white child, and his best friend John Henry, a black child. It is set in the summer of 1964, the year of the Civil Rights Act. When his town pool chooses to close rather than desegregate, Joe is forced to reflect on why his best friend does not share his same rights and privileges. This is a poignant book about friendship, difference, and fairness. It is an excellent resource for teaching children about the history of racism in the United States. Lagarrigue does an excellent job of capturing the warm, haziness of summer in his illustrations. I would highly recommend this book. ( )

I absolutely loved this book. The story really showed that children don't start out having these hurtful opinions, but instead learn out them from the adults around them. The friendship in this book is really powerful showing a good support system. The illustrations in my opinion were beautiful and very detailed. ( )
