This Is the Rope: A Story from the Great Migration
Jacqueline Woodson
The story of one family's journey north during the Great Migration starts with a little girl in South Carolina who finds a rope under a tree one summer. She has no idea the rope will become part of her family's history. But for three generations, that rope is passed down, used for everything from jump rope games to tying suitcases onto a car for the big move north to New York City, and even for a family reunion where that first little girl is now a grandmother. Newbery Honor-winning author Jacqueline Woodson and Coretta Scott King Award-winning illustrator James Ransome use the rope to frame a thoughtful and moving story as readers follow the little girl's journey. During the time of the Great Migration, millions of African American families relocated from the South, seeking better opportunities. With grace and poignancy, Woodson's lilting storytelling and Ransome's masterful oil paintings of country and city life tell a rich story of a family adapting to change as they hold on to the past and embrace the future.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Jacqueline WoodsonPublisher: Nancy Paulsen BooksPublished: 08/29/2013ISBN: 9780399239861Pages: 32Weight: 1.10lbsSize: 11.00h x 9.10w x 0.50dAward: North Carolina Children's Book Award - NomineeAward: Nevada Young Readers' Award - NomineeAward: South Carolina Childrens, Junior and Young Adult Book Award - NomineeAward: Keystone to Reading Book Award - NomineeAward: Kentucky Bluegrass Award - NomineeAward: Black-Eyed Susan Award - NomineeAward: Capitol Choices: Noteworthy Books for Children and Teens - RecommendedAward: Maryland Blue Crab Young Reader Award - Honor BookAward: Charlotte Zolotow Award - Honor BookReview Citations: Kirkus Reviews 01/01/0001Publishers Weekly 05/20/2013Kirkus Bea Big Book Guide 05/15/2013 pg. 57Horn Book Magazine 07/01/2013 pg. 118School Library Journal 07/01/2013 pg. 75Kirkus Reviews 07/01/2013Booklist 06/01/2013 pg. 111New York Times Book Review 08/25/2013 pg. 14Bulletin of Ctr for Child Bks 10/01/2013 pg. 126PW Best Children's Books 11/11/2013 pg. 23NY Times Notable Bks of Year 12/08/2013 pg. 35Hornbook Guide to Children 01/01/2014 - Superior,Well Above AverageAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 160741 / This Is the Rope: A Story from the Great MigrationReading Level: 3.6 / Interest Level: Lower Grade / Point Value: 0.5
