Jacqueline Woodson, the acclaimed author of
Red at the Bone, tells the moving story of her childhood in mesmerizing verse.
 
Raised in South Carolina and New York, Woodson always felt halfway home in each place. In vivid poems, she shares what it was like to grow up as an African American in the 1960s and 1970s, living with the remnants of Jim Crow and her growing awareness of the Civil Rights movement. Touching and powerful, each poem is both accessible and emotionally charged, each line a glimpse into a child??s soul as she searches for her place in the world. Woodson??s eloquent poetry also reflects the joy of finding her voice through writing stories, despite the fact that she struggled with reading as a child. Her love of stories inspired her and stayed with her, creating the first sparks of the gifted writer she was to become.

Brown Girl Dreaming de Jacqueline Woodson

  1. 10
    Autobiography of a Family Photo de Jacqueline Woodson (susanbooks)
    susanbooks: Autobiography of a Familly Photo is a prose novel and stands beautifully on its own. Read alongside Brown Girl Dreaming, the earlier book seems like the nightmare, R-rated version of the later one. Both are stunning.

This is the authors’ memoir written in verse as she grows up during the civil rights movement. This does a great job talking about heavy topics like racism, loss of family, and incarceration in a real but not extreme way. Love the way the author finds her strengths and weaknesses and finds a love for writing. I would use this in a book club format or as a whole class book as it is short enough in length but would be great for discussion. 5th grade and up. ( )

This book would be good for advanced students. This book is "Brown Girl Dreaming" written by Jacqueline Woodson and published in 2014. This book is about a girl that is in the midst of the revolution and her family is trying to get more oportnites and struggles in both the south that is their home and inNew York where there are more opportunities. This is her journey of her becoming a writer as well. This book would be goo din a classroom when teaching about the revolution or racism or segregation or how to reach book that is in poetry form.

Brown Girl Dreaming was a memoir written in verse. It didn’t have a single conflict or storyline, but it was true to real life and the author’s experience. It addressed deep topics such as racism, single parenting, children’s health scares, moving, friendship, and the loss of loved ones. It was a compelling, touching, inspirational, and beautiful novel. The poetic prose of the novel provided unique imagery that allowed the reader to feel as if we were sharing the author’s memories, while also remaining vague enough that we could still imagine and fill in the blanks. There was also superb use of foreshadowing throughout the book. We could see the emerging writer as she learned that words were her superpower.
I would use this book in my class as a book club book. I think it holds a lot of value as a non-fiction memoir, historical non-fiction, and as a discussion-starter about a lot of deep internal and social factors as well as literary devices. I would use this book for 7th-12th graders. ( )

4.5/5*

This was a beautifully told memoir in verse. Jacqueline Woodson discusses what it was like to grow up in both the North and the South during the 60s and 70s and how being black influenced her experience. This book has ignited my interest for more narratives told through poetry.

I listened to the audiobook along with reading the physical copy and I really enjoyed hearing the way the author read her poetry while simultaneously seeing the way it was written - poetry is as much about the words on the page as how they’re written.

I wanted to read this for National Poetry Month but I was only able to start the book on the 30th of April and finish it today.

The book would be a great book for Intermediate Readers
It is a book about Jaqueline Woodson and the many experiences she has growing up in the South.
This would be a good book to use to grow perspective and to provide an example of a way to explain life stories through poetry. It could also be paired with a History unit on Civil Rights to provide a personal experience.
