Hauntingly beautiful, evocative; to read again and again 26 May 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: School & Library Binding
A family wandering in the woods finds an old abandoned home place and wonders who lived there. Gradually, the past and present merge and separate --- the black family who homesteaded, dreamed their own dreams, lived, cooked, did chores comes to life briefly, then recedes. But "They were here... for every year the daffodils come up / to trumpet the good news of spring / forever and forever." With a strong and mysterious sense of time and timelessness, memory and imagination, the author's quietly spare words and the illustrator's sumptous, moving pictures move together seamlessly. I have used this in my class (it is one of the books which can kindle endless discussion and serve as an easy, natural springboard for student writing), read it to my own children countless times, and bought it as a gift for friends of all ages. Anyone who has a "home place" in their past; indeed anyone who wonders about what lasts and what falls away, will respond to this moving, lovely book.

warm story of history and remembrance 4 May 2006
By Melissa Hinkson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: School & Library Binding
This book is told in such a captivating tone by Ms. Dragonwagon and beautifully illustrated by Jerry Pinkney. The story will warm the heart of a "child" at any age. I recommend you read it regularly.

By Lynn Ellingwood - Published on Amazon.com

I really found this book interesting and intruiging. A great book to use in a unit on archeology or communities. Very absorbing and different.

For anyone of any age who has ever daydreamed about times gone by when walking in the woods or down a back alley of an old town or past a dilapidated house, this book will soothe sad feelings, warm the heart and gift the sunshine of daffodils.
