by Eloise Greenfield, Lessie Jones Little, and Jerry Pinkney
Eloise Greenfield'Three [African-American] women-grandmother, mother, daughter-recall significant aspects of their respective childhoods [from the 1800s through the 1950s]. The effect is poignant and moving [as familiar patterns develop]: household chores, school life and socials, encounters with prejudice, love of family, pride of heritage.' -H.
