Strawbeaters Thanksgiving by Irene Smalls, illustrations by Melodye Benson Rosales

$15.95

During the time of slavery, the men, women, and children who had worked so hard bringing in the harvest were sometimes allowed one night to celebrate the completion of their tasks. This story takes place during one of those nights.
  Jess has always wanted to be the special boy who is chosen to help the fiddler during the corn-shucking party. However, wishing is one thing, and making sure your wish comes true is something else.
  Irene Smalls’s story has been glowingly illustrated by Melodye Benson Rosales, and the combination of their talents creates a vivid vignette of a people’s strength and spirit during the terrible days of slavery.  © 29 pages
