Mildred Pitts Walter. Not having been on a horse all summer, his legs were stiff. His backside was sore from the saddle. He could hardly walk. he let cool water pelt him hard. He thought about the lunch outside and the talk about cowboys. He could hardly wait for the festival and the rodeo. When he went into his room to rest, he heard his grandpa downstairs getting ready to take his shower. He decided to go into Grandpa’s room to look out at the wooded rolling hills

"You can make your own egg, Justin." - Hadiya

"Justin, why didn't you clean your room?" - Mama

My son had to read this book for school. I ordered it because I knew in order to help him study and help with his homework that I would need to read it as well. I did not expect to like it, since it was required reading, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. It is about a young boy that lives with his mother and two sister’s. His does not like being the only boy in the house. There are a lot of things he cannot do well, which causes him to have very stereotypical beliefs in gender roles. That is, until he spends time with his Grandpa on his ranch. He learns a lot from his Grandpa and cannot wait to show his mom and sister’s everything he learned. It is a sweet story, and my son and I both enjoyed it very much. If your child participates in AR at school, the book is a level 3.9 worth 3 points.

I truly love this book because it identified with my experience of being blessed with two loving grandfathers. The grandfather in this book was like my grandfather's, he nurtured Justin's growth with patience and love. The story to me was all about being taught to grow through love and patience. Try reading Stealing Home by Mary Stoltz if you can find it. Another wonderful read for a black young male being raised by his grandfather.

I read this first and would have given it 4 stars based on pretty well written, cute story, amount of attention given to research and historical detail, and a nice little lesson on family relationships. Put it in the hands of a nine year old boy with a big sister and it becomes a laugh out loud, "I know just how he feels!", didn't want to stop reading, 5 star book. Perfect for reading to or kids who read on their own. And a great selection for family book clubs, a starting point for discussing inter-familial relationships and promoting understanding.

A wise grandfather leads his son into growth in self-esteem. It wasn't much fun being last at bat at everything, but Justin learned that by trying with the help of an "expert" he could be a winner, too. I loved the way the author wove American history into the story without making the slavery part be so gut-wrenching. I loved the way the great-grandfather's literacy allowed him to pass on much to his family. It is a book worth family sharing.
